Members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) are being encouraged to submit their nominations for 2017’s Security Personnel Awards, with the deadline just over two months away.

 

Each year, the BSIA recognises the commendable and limitless contributions made by security personnel each and every day, through the prestigious Security Personnel Awards. The awards acknowledge achievements across five categories: Service to the Customer, Outstanding Act, Best Newcomer, Best use of Technology and Best Team, which enables a wide variety of exceptional performances to be recognised. They are presented in both regional and national rounds of judging, with the national presentations taking place at the BSIA’s Annual Luncheon in July.

Camberford Law Plc – specialist insurance brokers to the security industry – have sponsored the Security Personnel Awards since their inception eighteen years ago. David Ottewill, Managing Director of Camberford Law, commented: “It is important to recognise and reward the hard work and efforts of those dedicated professionals within the security industry. As such, we were very proud to once again sponsor this year’s awards [2016].”

The 2016 awards saw 34 high-calibre regional winners and 17 outstanding national winners scoop awards for their contributions to community safety and maintaining the industry’s favourable reputation. Many of these inspirational achievements included life-saving actions, exceptional customer service and impressive teamwork.

Chief Executive of the BSIA, James Kelly, commented: “Our industry has an incredible amount of talent on offer, many of whom go above and beyond what is expected of them each and every day. These professional men and women play a vital role in safeguarding our nation and the BSIA takes immense pride in helping to recognise their achievements.

“For our member companies, the awards present a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talents of their workforce who consistently deliver the best possible standard of service. Security personnel are the public face of our industry and are key to the continued growth of consumer trust in our industry. As such, it is hugely important that we reward the exceptional levels of professionalism displayed by security personnel.

“The awards have traditionally been dominated by the larger companies operating in the security industry; however, our awards are now regularly presented to employees of small and medium sized companies and they often pick up some of the most coveted awards. I would therefore strongly encourage members of all sizes to participate in nominating their employees for this year’s awards.”

The deadline for nominations for the 2017 awards is the 30th November 2016, with the judging of the regional awards taking place throughout December. Those successful in the regional rounds will then progress to the national round of judging which takes place in March 2017. The national award winners will be announced at the BSIA’s flagship event – the Association’s Annual Luncheon – where they will be presented with their awards in front of some of the industry’s most influential people.

The winners and their employers receive positive publicity in local and regional media, as well as comprehensive coverage in the security trade press.
