‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Safety’

‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Safety’

Roger Hirst, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex wants to hear about your community heroes – people from across Essex who make an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Safety’.

The process is simple to complete, and winners will be recognised at the PFCC Annual Conference on Thursday, March 15th March 2018 which is being held at Boreham House in Chelmsford.

The winner will receive £500 to go towards their work in the community and two highly commended winners will also receive £300. There will also be a chance for the people of Essex to vote for the winner of a People’s Choice category from a shortlist of entrants selected by a judging panel. The People’s Choice winner will receive £100.

To win an award, you have to demonstrate that the nominee is an exceptional person or group that have gone above and beyond to keep their community safe. They also have to have delivered a project or scheme that has improved the safety of those around them. Nominees can be volunteers or those who work in a professional capacity, delivering a service to the public to keep people safe, prevent crime and protect the most vulnerable people in our communities.
