Community Policing Awards
Nominations for the 2022 Community Policing Awards are now open.
These awards take place annually at a ceremony held in Oxfordshire and this will be its 21st year. The CPAs provide 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.
The nominations will be collated and sifted down to a shortlist before they are put to a panel of judges who will make the final decision of who the community champions are.
This year there are nine categories:
1. Community Police Officer 2022
Do you know a neighbourhood police officer who has made a difference to your community? Examples should demonstrate an ability to work within the officer’s community to tackle issues, defuse tensions and encourage or instigate positive engagement, not only working alone but with partners and colleagues. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Q89RHB5
