Nominations open for awards celebrating police volunteers

Published 22 August 2017

Do you know a police volunteer who deserves special recognition? Nominate them in our annual awards in celebration of police volunteers in England and Wales.

The countdown to the 2017 Lord Ferrers Awards has begun - and the public are invited to nominate inspiring police volunteers. Policing and Fire Minister Nick Hurd launched the nominations for 24th annual Lord Ferrers Awards which recognise the outstanding contribution of special constables, police support volunteers and volunteer police cadets.

The awards are a chance to celebrate the achievements of police volunteers across England and Wales and you can nominate a police volunteer who you feel deserves special recognition via this online form. The deadline for submitting your nomination is Sunday 17 September.

This year a new category has been introduced for Technical Innovation, to encourage recognition of ‘cyber specials’ and those volunteers using technology creatively to combat the changing nature of crime.

Celebrating the achievements of police volunteers

Policing and Fire Minister, Nick Hurd said:

“Policing has a long and proud history of volunteers and the Lord Ferrers Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate their achievements.

“Every day special constables, police support volunteers and volunteer police cadets make a selfless contribution to tackling crime and supporting police forces.

“I urge members of the public to nominate police volunteers who they think have made an outstanding contribution to their communities for an award.”
