Nominations wanted for Safer Awards
Police and Crime Commissioner Michael Lane is inviting people to put forward individuals they think deserve recognition for going the extra mile to help keep their community safer.
The Commissioner’s Safer Awards recognise the outstanding contribution volunteers and partners make to policing, the criminal justice system and in keeping the community safer. People from across the public, private and voluntary sector will be recognised for the difference they make to help the lives of others.
The Police and Crime Commissioner is inviting nominations to the categories of Community Volunteer of the Year and Safer Superhero:
Community Volunteer of the Year – A member of the public who volunteers in their local community to help to keep people safer. This can be a formal volunteer role with another organisation, or a person who volunteers on their own to help others e.g. helps an elderly neighbour maintain their garden and house which can help to prevent them from being identified as vulnerable by others.
Safer Superhero – A young person who has shown bravery, courage or kindness to keep someone safer. This can be a young person, up to the age of 16 years old, who has helped someone else to be safer. For example, it could be that they care for another family member, have helped someone who has been affected by crime or have shown an act of kindness.

Nominations close on 1st November.
