His second commendation, in 2006, was in recognition of his quick thinking and brave actions while on duty as a parks' officer in Islington when he and a colleague tackled and detained a man who had just attempted to shoot two police officers.

In this, his latest commendation he received his award for the initial investigation and the clear concise communication which led to the arrest of three suspects for an international kidnapping of a seven year-old girl. Due to the actions of Mr Peachey and colleagues during the initial investigation, the girl was found and three suspects arrested within 20 minutes of the initial call.
