BSIA…earnestly promoting excellence within the security sector

Vigilance can confirm that The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has announced the regional winners of this year’s Annual Security Personnel Awards.

The awards which are now in their fifteenth year, serve to recognise the hard work of high calibre professionals working within the security industry across five different categories: Best Team, Outstanding Act, Service to the Customer, Best Newcomer and Best Use of Technology.

“It is fantastic to see the high level of achievements within the security year in, year out,” said Trevor Elliott, Director of Manpower and Membership Services at the BSIA. “The awards are always so hard to judge due to the exceptional standard of applicants, and this year was no exception.

Trevor added: “The BSIA prides itself upon representing the very best in the security industry and the outstanding contributions of our award winners merely solidify this. We are extremely proud to be associated with the talent displayed by our winners and look forward to presenting them with their awards.”

A source at the BSIA said the award presentations would take place across the UK in the coming months, with each of the winners also going forward to the national judging phase. The national winners will be presented with their awards at the Association’s annual lunch on July 16th.

The BSIA would like to thank Camberford Law plc – specialist insurance brokers to the security industry – who have sponsored the awards since their inception.
