Bravery Awards

Bravery Awards 2017 header image

The countdown is on to our annual Police Bravery Awards which honour some of the finest officers in England and Wales who have performed incredible acts of bravery, while on or off duty.

Now in its 22nd year, we never fail to be humbled by every nomination.  This year we have 71 nominees from 40 force areas and will be recognising their bravery in July.

The event is sponsored by Police Mutual - Stephen Mann, CEO, said: “Police Mutual is very proud to be supporting the Police Bravery Awards for the ninth consecutive year.  I am always astounded by police officers’ acts of bravery and my colleagues and I continue to be inspired by their dedication.  They are a true inspiration and I feel privileged and humbled to be part of the Awards again.”

We will shortly be sharing more information including their stories – in the meantime, why not watch the highlights from last year's event below:
