Nominations are now open for the World Class Policing Awards 2019, which "will honour the very best in policing at a prestigious awards ceremony" in November this year.
The World Class Policing Awards 2019 will:
- Recognise examples of “world class” policing
- Celebrate excellence in policing, both in the United Kingdom and around the world
- Encourage modern, progressive, collaborative and effective policing
- Showcase individual, team and organisational achievement and success
- Promote the sharing and delivery of innovation and good practice
Anyone can nominate any team in any force area, including multi-agency teams, that have excelled in any area of policing, whether that is operational policing or support functions.
Modern policing is about collaboration, both small and large scale, which is why the World Class Policing Awards will recognise exceptional policing regardless of whether it has been achieved by a team from a single force, a collaboration between forces or a partnership between a force and other agencies in either the public sector, 3rd sector, commercial or academic organisations.
The awards want to recognise the partners that made the nominated activity a success. However, all nominations will, in due course, require the approval of a lead police force to be accepted.
The awards are about recognising all types of personnel who have made the nominated activity successful including police officers, staff, PCSOs, Specials, volunteers and, of course, employees from the partner organisations.
- The World Class Policing Awards recognises all types of activity covering the breadth of modern policing – nominations may include but are not confined to:
- Victim support including improvements in identification of vulnerability
- New system/technology implementation
- Outstanding or complex investigations
- Operations delivering difference
- Projects driving change
- Crime prevention reducing harm in communities (real or virtual)
- Business change to tackle new and emerging offences
- Training and development in a changing world
- Employee and officer welfare building sustainable policing
A judging panel of independent policing stakeholders will shortlist the nominations for recognition at the prestigious awards ceremony in November.

UK Public Safety MD for Accenture, and Chair of techUK's Justice and Emergency Services Programme said; "We're currently living in a time when UK policing is having to do even more with the limited resources they have and be even braver than they've had to be in the past. Not a day goes by without our police putting themselves in harm's way to protect the UK public. We're fortunate to have the best police personnel in the world, and to be part of a movement that recognises them (and hopefully creates an enduring legacy) is a real privilege."
