POLICE BRAVERY AWARDS 2013: CELEBRATING THE BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE

The judging has now taken place for the 18th Annual Police Bravery Awards. This year’s nominee acts which include officers saving occupants from burning cars and buildings, dramatic river rescues and tackling armed offenders and gangs with knives, screwdrivers and guns; were presided over by a panel of ten which included the president of ACPO, Sir Hugh Orde and Baroness Newlove of Warrington.

This year 64 officers have been nominated; all of whom have made an outstanding contribution to policing, acting selflessly to protect others.

Steve Williams, Chair, Police Federation of England and Wales said; “These remarkable acts of heroism are truly humbling. They are what define the uniqueness of what we do as a police service. This year’s nominees are deserving of the highest praise – they are a credit to policing and the public that they serve. These awards are a way of recognising some of the most outstanding acts of bravery performed by police officers in England and Wales.”

Stephen Mann, CEO, Police Mutual said; “We consider it a real honour to be the sponsors of the Police Bravery Awards. Every single police officer who has been nominated for an award today is a truly special individual. It is only right that we take time out to reflect on their heroism and dedication and recognise the incredibly difficult situations police officers face, in keeping the public safe.”
