The charity’s prestigious UK Roads Policing and Family Liaison Officer Awards celebrate and recognise the outstanding achievements and support provided by roads policing and police family liaison officers (FLOs), and showcase best practice in supporting families after a road death or serious injury.

Sergeant Scott Lee-Amies of Suffolk Constabulary was announced as winner of the Outstanding Family Liaison Officer Award. Sergeant Lee-Amies was nominated for the award by his police colleagues, who commended him for his dedication to, and passion for, the role of Family Liaison Co-ordinator (FLC).

As FLC, Sergeant Lee-Amies is responsible for developing and undertaking the training and professional development of FLOs in his department. He has become a role model for current and aspiring FLOs in his constabulary and beyond.

Highly commended for the award were Sergeant Jason Heather, Kent Police, and PC Aaron Duffy, Norfolk Police. Sergeant Heather was praised for his work in Operation Sandpiper, providing support packages to families, while PC Duffy’s colleagues commended him for the empathy and care he shows when handling complex cases.

The winners were announced in London at Brake’s Annual Reception. The evening brought together many of Brake’s supporters, staff, and partners to reflect on the progress of road safety, inspire action, and remember road victims.

The UK Roads Policing and Family Liaison Officer Awards 2022/2023 were sponsored by Alderstone Solicitors, HCC Solicitors, Hodge Jones & Allen, and Slater and Gordon.
