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 the awards ceremony will take place during Road Safety Week, 16-22 November 2020. Due to COVID-19 the ceremony will now take place as a virtual online event.
Nominations for these awards are open from 31 January 2020. The deadline for entries has been extended until 5pm on 26 June 2020.
