She tackled a woman with a knife on a Boscombe street.
A Police officer who single handedly tackled a woman who has since been covicted of manslaughter could recieve a national bravery award.
PC Jacqueline Ellis detained a woman walking through the streets of Boscombe brandishing a large blood stained knife.
She disarmed the suspect with the use of her PAVA spray and kept her at the scene until back up arrived.
Clive Chamberlain, Chairman of Dorset Police Federation commented on PCEllis’s Bravery today said: "The woman posed a significant and very real threat to members of the public; having killed her mother earlier that day. Knowing this, PC Ellis showed exemplary bravery and calm in the face of potential danger. Her selfless actions and fearlessness are a testament to her professionalism and act as an example to us all.
"This was an amazingly brave act from a single-crewed officer - who at the time was only out of her probation by 8 months. The offender was dangerous - still armed and had already killed someone.”
