The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland is searching for excellent examples of community safety action to be recognised in his annual awards.
Nominations are open for the fifth Cleveland Community Safety Awards, which will take place at Middlesbrough College on Wednesday 22nd November 2017.
The awards were created four years ago by PCC Barry Coppinger and are held annually to celebrate those who make a difference in their communities.
Barry Coppinger said: “A central part of my role as PCC is to promote good examples of community safety action that help make Cleveland a safer place to live, work and visit.
“That’s why I created these awards - to highlight the fantastic work going on in our communities on a daily basis and to recognise the difference these people make.
“I look forward to reading through the nominations this year and encourage anyone who has witnessed examples of good community work to make a nomination.”
The awards recognise achievements of those in the police, housing organisations, community safety partnerships, and the private and voluntary sectors.
There are twelve categories:
- Neighbourhood Police Officer of the Year
- Neighbourhood Police Community Support Officer of the Year
- Neighbourhood Special Constable of the Year
- Neighbourhood Team of the Year
- Neighbourhood Officer Best at Tackling Antisocial Behaviour
- Neighbourhood Watch Co-Ordinator of the Year
- Housing Provider Contribution to Tackling Antisocial Behaviour
- Community Volunteer Champion
- Young Community Volunteer
- Community Minded Business
- Outstanding Support to a Victim
Hartlepool PC Geoff Coggin won Neighbourhood Officer of the Year at the 2016 awards for his work with schools and youth groups to help turn young men away from crime.
He said: “It was an honour to be recognised in the Community Safety Awards last year. It means a lot to know that the work I’m doing to make Cleveland safer is being recognised.
“If you know someone who makes a difference to their community and helps make people feel safer, then you should definitely nominate them for an award.”
Nominations for the awards will close on Friday 29th September 2017.
