About the Awards

The National Police Public Bravery Awards recognise the assistance provided by members of the public who have intervened to foil criminal acts and come to the assistance of others.

The Association of Chief Police Officers and the Association of Police Authorities, with the kind support of our sponsors, are proud to present the awards each summer to members of the public nominated by the police officers themselves who investigated and dealt with the crimes they intervened in.

Medal winners are invited to a Gala Awards Evening where they and a guest will be accommodated in one of the area’s top hotels.

We are currently inviting nominations from police forces who wish acts of courage to be formally recognised.
