The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has announced the regional winners of the 2019 Security Personnel Awards. Those winners will now go forward as national finalists in the British Security Awards, the ceremony for which takes place in London on 10 July at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
The BSIA holds its annual Security Personnel Awards to celebrate excellence in security provision both regionally and nationally for some of the truly outstanding personnel within the industry, recognising those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their everyday work.
For over 20 years these awards – sponsored as always by Camberford Underwriting – serve to recognise the talent, dedication, skill and bravery exhibited by security personnel in their roles. Each year, the BSIA is inundated with fantastic nominations detailing security officers who have saved lives or have been instrumental in police investigations. In 2019, the regional winners have exhibited some truly outstanding acts of bravery, customer service, teamwork and forward thinking. They represent a broad spectrum of BSIA members and their clients.
Mike Reddington, CEO of the BSIA, said: “As the voice of the professional security industry, it’s vital that the BSIA recognises the dedication security personnel exhibit in keeping the public and property safe. More often than not, these security professionals are first on the scene when incidents and emergencies occur and they demonstrate true quality and professionalism in their actions. This year’s regional winners are no exception to that rule and have shown remarkable achievements throughout the past year.”
Reddington added: “Judging all of the inspirational nominations was a tough task, especially so as the process included a substantial number of entries. This year’s winners should be immensely proud of their achievements and we wish them the best of luck as they go forward to the national stage at the British Security Awards in July.”
