Year-on-year we are humbled to receive nominations for officers across 43 force areas - officers who have put the safety of others before themselves. From running into burning buildings, wading into deep waters, tackling armed offenders, being shot at, stabbed, driven at, the list goes on. Every officer we recognise at the Police Bravery Awards is an inspiration and we pay credit to their dedication to duty in the presence of senior officials in government and policing, culminating in a glittering awards ceremony in central London.
Sadly we have had to postpone the last two events due to the pandemic but we remain optimistic that we can meet this year on 12 October and 9 December to say thank you to our 2020 and 2021 winners on a national stage.
Judging hasn't started yet for 2021 but you can read the phenomenal stories of 2020 by clicking on the menu on the left.
These awards would not be possible without the support of Police Mutual, who have steadfastly sponsored the Police Bravery Awards for more than 10 years.
This is an event to remember and here’s a reminder of why the Police Bravery Awards are so important
