Thames Valley Police Community Policing Awards
Nominations sought for police officers and volunteers who have made the greatest contribution to their community
There’s just one day left to make a nomination for this year’s Thames Valley Police Community Policing Awards. The awards take place in May each year at a ceremony held at Eynsham Hall near Witney.
Now in its nineteenth year, the awards ceremony provides an opportunity to recognise the work of officers, staff and volunteers who have made the greatest contribution to their community over the past year.
The nominations period closes on Monday (February 24th). There are nine categories:
- Community Police Officer – a neighbourhood police officer who has made a difference to their community? Someone in this category might work within the community to tackle issues, defuse tensions and encourage or instigate positive engagement, not only working alone but with partners and colleagues. Nominate here.
- Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) – a PCSO who has made an outstanding contribution to the community? Nominate here.
- Special Constable – a Special Constable who has gone above and beyond to serve the community? Nominate here.
- Diversity Champion – a person who improves engagement with minority groups in the community, working towards increasing diversity and improving accessibility between the force and the public. Nominate here.
- Cadet – a young dedicated volunteer who wants to make a difference in their community. Nominate here.
- Volunteer – a person who actively supports the police and volunteers to work within a team in Thames Valley Police. Nominate here.
- Community Volunteer – a volunteer who assists with community concerns and enforcing the law. This person will not be employed by Thames Valley Police but work voluntarily to support the community they live or work within. Nominate here.
- Problem Solving Award – an individual or team who have worked collectively to problem solve a community issue connected to crime reduction, anti-social behaviour or vulnerability which has made a real difference to a community. Nominate here.
- Response Officer – Response officers work around the clock responding to emergency calls and dealing with incidents as they happen. It is a fast-paced and challenging environment to operate in. This will be a response officer who has gone above and beyond in their role. Nominate here.
Nomination will be sifted down to a shortlist and then a panel of judges will make the final decision as to who are the community champions of the year.
