Excellence in policing will be honoured at upcoming eighth British Association for Women in Policing Awards in November.
Cressida Dick, President of the BAWP and an Assistant Commissioner at the Met, will welcome delegates to the event and there will be an awards presentation and guest speakers at the day at the Bridge Foot Holiday Inn in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Sara Thornton, Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police and Anne-Marie Orler, former United Nations Police Adviser, will also be speaking at the event on November 11.
Awards will be handed out for bravery, excellence, leadership, police staff achievement and mentoring. There will also be Police Officer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and a Special Recognition Award.
Ch Insp Sarah Shrubshall, BAWP Committee Member from Suffolk Constabulary, said: “We are excited to be hosting our eighth annual awards ceremony.
“This year, as well as the awards ceremony itself and a fabulous three course luncheon, inspirational speakers have been invited to attend to offer a development opportunity to those who wish to join us in celebrating the achievements of our award winners.
“There will be distinguished guests from forces across the country joining us on the day, and attendees will be encouraged to meet others and exploit those networking opportunities throughout the event. Book now as places are limited and going fast. We look forward to seeing you there.”
The father of Greater Manchester Police PC Nicola Hughes - who was shot dead in Manchester in 2012 - is also attending the event.
