Alumni awards

The annual Alumni Impact Awards are a chance to recognise the impact our alumni have had since starting their careers as police constables and detective constables.

The Police Now Alumni Impact Awards 2023 are now closed for nominations. This year, we are looking for alumni from our National Graduate Leadership Programme and National Detective Programme who have gone above and beyond. 

This year we have three award categories, which are:

Outstanding leadership
Nominations for this category will be from alumni who have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. They will have shown their ability to inspire and motivate others to achieve positive change. This could be within their force or within the community they police and may have been a single piece of work or a long-term project. Their leadership will have led to tangible improvements for victims, communities, or for staff within their force.

Improving public confidence
This category will recognise alumni who have made a significant impact in their community by working to build strong, positive relationships.  This could be one victim, through a victim focused investigation or the wider community they are working in. The nominees will have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the challenges their community are facing. This category is focused on the impact of the work and the results, with public confidence being a key factor.

Brilliant community problem solving or investigation
The nominees for this category will showcase how they have utilised good problem-solving techniques or strong investigative skills. They will have used innovative and creative approaches to problem solving, using data to drive decision making. A fundamental part of this category is understanding the method behind the problem solving/investigation. They are likely to have used or contributed to evidence-based policing.

To find out more about the scoring criteria for each category, click here – or email us at [email protected].  Please note, nominations are open until 30th June 2023.
