The draw was held on 1 December 2008 and Gwyn Jones was the lucky winner.

The prize was awarded to Gwyn by Police Mutual Force Authorised Officer, Sergeant Graham Jones at North Wales Police HQ in Colwyn Bay. Gwyn joined North Wales Police in 1971 and served as a PC for 8 years in Anglesey and Hawarden, as a Detective Constable with the Drug Squad for 4 years, then 18 years with the Special Branch, before retiring in 2001.
