Police Oracle, the UK’s largest provider of police news and information, will join Policing Insight, the leading provider of in depth analysis of policing and criminal justice issues, as an official media partner for the World Class Policing Awards 2019.
The Awards, which are now open for nominations, aim to recognise the very best of policing at a prestigious awards ceremony in London in November.
The World Class Policing Awards will recognise excellence in all areas and that is why we are delighted to be on board.

Martin Buhagiar, Police Oracle Editor, said: “At a time when police officers up and down the country face unprecedented levels of demand, we at Police Oracle are delighted to be involved with the World Class Policing Awards. We cannot wait to see the nominations flood in and look forward to seeing our heroic boys and girls in blue honoured at the awards evening.”
He added: “Police Oracle is proud to be a media partner alongside Policing Insight. In every hour of every day a police officer somewhere in the UK is going above and beyond the call of duty, running towards danger when others run the other way.
“It is my belief that every act of bravery, every quick thinking, life-saving decision by our police officers should be publicised. But sometimes the smaller gestures by officers are often over-looked even though they have left a truly positive impact on the person they have helped. The World Class Policing Awards will recognise excellence in all areas and that is why we are delighted to be on board.”
Tina Orr-Munro, Policing Insight Editor, said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Police Oracle on board as our media partner for the World Class Policing Awards as we celebrate the very best of policing. Our unique collaboration reflects the spirit of the awards which will focus on the many excellent police teams and partnerships.
World Class Policing Awards 2019 is about recognising great team work which sits at the heart of great policing. Even Sherlock Holmes had his Watson and Cagney had her Lacey.

“World Class Policing Awards 2019 is all about rewarding great team work which sits at the heart of great policing. Even Sherlock Holmes had his Watson and Cagney had her Lacey. The awards reflect the fact that, Increasingly, today’s teams are made up of police and non-police agencies so it doesn’t matter if you’re a CID team who have completed a successful operation or a multi-agency partnership doing some ground-breaking work on re-offending, we want to celebrate your success, so get nominating!”
The World Class Policing Awards 2019 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
What makes the World Class Policing Awards different from other awards recognising the best in policing?
Firstly, anyone can nominate any team in any force area, including multi-agency teams, that have excelled in any area of policing, whether that is operational policing or support functions.
Modern policing is about collaboration, both small and large scale, which is why the World Class Policing Awards will recognise exceptional policing regardless of whether it has been achieved by a team from a single force, a collaboration between forces or a partnership between a force and other agencies in either the public sector, 3rd sector, commercial or academic organisations.
The awards want to recognise the partners that made the nominated activity a success. However, all nominations will, in due course, require the approval of a lead police force to be accepted.
Secondly, the awards are about recognising all types of personnel who have made the nominated activity successful including police officers, staff, PCSOs, Specials, volunteers and, of course, employees from the partner organisations.
Finally, the World Class Policing Awards 2019 recognises all types of activity covering the breadth of modern policing – nominations may include but are not confined to:
- Victim support including improvements in identification of vulnerability
- New system/technology implementation
- Outstanding or complex investigations
- Operations delivering difference
- Projects driving change
- Crime prevention reducing harm in communities (real or virtual)
- Business change to tackle new and emerging offences
- Training and development in a changing world
- Employee and officer welfare building sustainable policing
A judging panel of independent policing stakeholders will shortlist the nominations for recognition at the prestigious awards ceremony in November.
The World Class Policing Awards 2019 awards are supported by a range of policing partners, who are all global experts in supporting police in protecting the public.
The closing date for completed nominations is 5pm on
Friday 5 July – NOW EXTENDED TO FRIDAY 12TH JULY! To make a nomination, please go to www.WorldClassPolicing.com to register as a nominator. For information about the awards or the nominations process, contact: [email protected] or call: +44 (0) 1772 767782.
