Search for outstanding heroes of policing and community safety begins

PCC Award banner

Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe has launched a quest for nominations for a new award to recognise people in Warwickshire who made an outstanding contribution to policing or community safety.

The new PCC Award for Excellence in Policing and Community Safety will be presented for the first time at Warwickshire Police’s 160th anniversary celebrations  and awards evening in November.

Nominations are now being sought, either for individuals or teams working within Warwickshire who have demonstrated sustained outstanding achievement over and above what is expected of them in their normal day-to-day role.  Their actions must have contributed to a reduction in crime or disorder or helped bring about improvements in community safety in support of the priorities of the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan for Warwickshire, making a real difference under challenging circumstances.

Officers, police staff, volunteers, members of the Special Constabulary or individuals or teams from the wider community in Warwickshire are eligible for the award. Mr Seccombe will make the final selection from those nominated.

He said: “While the Chief Constable has a number of awards already to recognise good police work and to commend officers and staff for exceptional work in dealing with incidents or investigations, I have been keen to develop a new award which highlights teams or individuals from within policing and the wider community who make a real difference to Warwickshire by regularly going above and beyond what is expected in their day-to-day role.

“With the force celebrating its 160th year with a special anniversary evening in November, now seems the ideal time to launch my new award, which will then become an annual part of future force awards evenings.

“I’m keen to receive nominations from across the county, both from within policing and more widely from the public, so if you know someone who would be a worthy recipient, please do get in touch.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 27 October.  Nomination forms can be found on the PCC website at: www.warwickshire-pcc.gov.uk/pccaward or by contacting the Commissioner’s office on 01926 412322 or by email at opcc@warwickshire.gov.uk.
