Police and Crime Commissioner Awards
The Police and Crime Commissioner wanted to formally recognise the outstanding work carried out by people within Cumbria who help to keep their communities safe in either a voluntary or professional capacity. People who go that extra mile to deliver services to the public, preventing crime, supporting vulnerable people and victims or deliver an outstanding service.
The Commissioner established some community-based awards to show his recognition and thanks to those working so hard on Cumbria’s behalf. There were five awards: Outstanding Citizen, Outstanding Young Citizen, Outstanding Community Project, Outstanding Volunteer Award and Outstanding Team or Outstanding Professional. From the winner of each category the Commissioner selected an overall winner who was presented with the Commissioner’s Annual Award.
In 2017 nominations were open to individuals and teams from across the community, voluntary or business sectors, where an outstanding contribution has been made to improve community safety, prevent crime, protect vulnerable people and supporting the objectives within the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan. Further information on the categories, terms and conditions and the nomination form completed can be found by clicking on the links below:
The Commissioner, along with a Judging Panel considered all the received nominations and selected a winner for each category from each of the three territorial policing area. The awards were presented to the winners at award ceremonies during July 2017 in Workington, Barrow and Carlisle. A list of those who won the awards can be viewed here.
