Brake Family Liaison Officer Awards
Brake is pleased to confirm that its Family Liaison Officer Awards will return in 2019, and are now open for entry.
The awards celebrate and recognise the outstanding achievements and support provided by Police Family Liaison Officers, and showcase best practice in supporting families following a road death or serious injury.
Following a judging process, an awards ceremony will take place in summer 2019.
Three categories will be open for nominations in 2019:
- Outstanding Officer Achievement Award
This award is open for peer entries from Police staff, and we are encouraging nominations from all 43 forces in England and Wales. This award seeks to recognise significant, ongoing contribution to victims’ families from an FLO.
- Family Award
This prize is open for families who were supported by a Police Family Liaison Officer. We would encourage anyone who would like to share their experiences of support from a Police Family Liaison Officer to nominate their FLO for this award.
- Award for Excellent Longstanding Service
This award, newly introduced in 2019, aims to recognise outstanding commitment and dedication to family liaison.
Nominations for these awards are open from 8 November 2018. The deadline for entries is 15 March 2019.
If you would like any further information or guidance about entering the award, please email email@example.com.
The award winners will be invited to present their case studies at Brake's annual 'Police family liaison following road death and serious injury' Conference, which will be held in the West Midlands in October 2019.
