Winners from last year
Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is appealing for nominations for his two coveted awards honouring the county’s unsung community heroes.
The PCC is now accepting entries for his Partnerships Award and Community Safety Award in this year’s Nottinghamshire Police Awards.
The annual ceremony takes place at Albert Hall on Wednesday 14 November and organisations have until 5pm on Friday October 26 to enter.
Launching the nomination process, Mr Tipping said: “Nottinghamshire has a wealth of passionate and dedicated people making a difference to their communities and I always look forward to hearing about their fantastic efforts.
“Strong partnership working really is the bedrock of good community policing and I’m privileged to be in a position to reward those organisations which have gone above and beyond to help vulnerable people stay safe.”
The PCC’s Partnerships Award honours successful organisations or teams which have worked in partnership to deliver the goals of the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.
Successful nominees must show evidence of how they have protected people from harm, helped and supported victims, tackled crime and antisocial behaviour or transformed services to increase public confidence by working closely with partnership agencies.
Previous winners of the award include Nottingham Street Pastors, Outreach Solutions for the “Tackling Fraud” programme and Nottinghamshire Healthcare (NHS) Trust & CCG for the Street Triage Team.
Meanwhile, the PCC’s Community Safety Award is open to organisations or teams which have made a positive contribution to community safety by either helping to raise public awareness of a safety issue, increasing public confidence to report crime, enabling groups of people to enjoy their communities safely or by gathering and using intelligence to disrupt crime and antisocial behaviour.
Previous winners of the award include WAIS and Nottinghamshire Women’s Aid Ltd for their Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVAs) provision, Nottingham Women’s Centre for the ‘Safer for Women’ programme and A1 Housing.
