ROBYN Craft is the inaugural winner of the Castle Hill Rotary Club's Hills Police Officer of the Year Awards.
Ms Craft, who is not a police officer, was recognised for her tireless work as a civilian intelligence analyst.
She won the overall Hills award ahead of category winners Constable Adam Davis who received the New Police Officer Award, Senior Constable Robert Paterson who won the Community Service Award and Sergeant Paul Van Dyke and Sergeant Mark Fehon who jointly received the Police Leadership Award.
Ms Craft, who was unable to attend the awards dinner, was honoured by her peers.
Sergeant Fehon said the 22-year veteran had become an "indispensable" part of the team at Castle Hill police station for monitoring crime methods, mapping crime hot spots and tracking persons of interest.
He described her as a "very modest but deserving winner".
"I was blown away when one of the senior crime officers texted me while I was on holidays in Hawaii," Ms Craft said.
"Everyone's been so supportive over the years and helped make policing a rewarding career for me."
Ms Craft has now been nominated for the NSW Police Officer of the Year awards on Friday.
