Reminder! Do you know a Community Safety Hero?
Do you know somebody in your community who goes the extra mile to support vulnerable people, prevent crime and make their communities safer? If so, then why not nominate them for a Community Safety Award, organised by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex. The process is simple to complete with the winners recognised at the PFCC Annual Conference.
This event takes place on Friday, June 7th at Colchester United Football Stadium.
The winner will receive £500 to go towards their work in the community and two runners’ up or 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 the judging panel. The People’s Choice winner will receive £100.
This year we have a new category for young people open to anybody aged up to and including 24-years-old. The winner of this award will receive £300 to go towards their work in the community.
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. The deadline for nominations is midnight on Sunday, May 12th.
