Brake Family Liaison Officer Awards

Brake is pleased to confirm that its Family Liaison Officer Awards will return in 2020 and are now open for entry.

The awards celebrate and recognise the outstanding achievements and support provided by Police Family Liaison Officers (FLOs), and showcase best practice in supporting families following a road death or serious injury.

Following a judging process, an awards ceremony will take place on 8 July 2020, in London.

Three categories will be open for nominations from 31 January 2020.

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.
