The World Class Policing® Awards will celebrate and acknowledge the best in all aspects of 21st century policing. The awards reflect that effective modern day policing requires partnership and collaboration, whether in teams of officers and staff; collaboration between forces; multi-agency operations; wider public sector involvement; and collaboration also with the supplier community and beyond. The awards will also recognise that successful outcomes and developments in policing come from a blend of innovative, committed and well trained personnel, serving, engaging and protecting the public, delivering good practice, using technology and systems to police efficiently and effectively.

The WCP awards will:

Recognise examples of “world class” policing
Celebrate excellence in policing, both in the United Kingdom and around the world
Encourage modern, progressive, collaborative and effective policing
Showcase individual, team and organisational achievement and success
Promote the sharing and delivery of innovation and good practice
