Community Policing Awards 2018 – Nominations Now Open

Nominations open today (9/1) for this year’s Community Policing Awards.

The Community Policing Awards take place each year at a ceremony held at Eynsham Hall near Witney in Oxfordshire, in May. This ceremony is now in its seventeenth year and provides an opportunity to recognise and nominate the work of officers, staff and volunteers who have made the greatest contribution to their community over the past year.

Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their role? Someone who you believe should be recognised for their hard work and efforts over the last year? Could you provide an example of how they have exceeded what is expected of them?

Winner of Berkshire Community Police Officer 2017, PC Lucy Brydon, said on receiving the award: “It’s great to have the recognition that you’re doing a good job and it’s particularly special that the nomination came from the victim themselves. I feel very passionate about helping people and trying to make a difference for them. To receive a nomination and recognition for my work is a surprise but something I am grateful for.”
