British Security Industry Association unveils plans for 2019 British Security Awards

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has launched the British Security Awards for 2019. With the ceremony scheduled to take place on Wednesday 10 July at The Marriot Hotel on Grosvenor Square in London, the British Security Awards will celebrate the achievements made by security officers and teams across the UK’s private security industry, as well as acknowledging innovations in technology and business and the career contributions made by long-serving industry stalwarts.

The industry’s foremost practitioners will be recognised in 16 categories including Security Personnel of the Year, Innovative Security Project, National and International Partnership, Entrepreneur of the Year, Business of the Year, Apprentice of the Year and Bravery.

Nominations are now open for all categories. There will be a round of regional winners announced prior to the national finals for the Security Personnel Awards.

Simon Banks, chairman of the BSIA, said: “The British Security Awards is the national event designed to recognise the talent and commitment of our industry’s finest. The scale of achievement from across each sector is quite remarkable and recognises acts of untold bravery, ingenuity in the application of new technology and the successful delivery of projects by forward-thinking self-starters. We’re looking forward to rewarding these exemplars for their dedication to their chosen profession and welcome stakeholders and colleagues from across the industry to share in this celebration of excellence.”
