Adjudication on the UK OSPAs is undertaken by an esteemed independent panel, the members of which have been nominated by the leading security associations.
Winners will be selected from finalists and presented with their awards at a prestigious awards dinner taking place on Wednesday 26 February 2020 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in central London.
OSPAs founder and director Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI told Risk Xtra: “The security industry plays a vital role in safeguarding public and private sector organisations and the general public. There are many companies and talented individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty to protect property, people and assets and they deserve to be recognised. The OSPAs provide an independent platform to showcase the exceptional and unconditional work that’s being done by so many. It’s hugely important that we reward and acknowledge the incredible contribution made in keeping us all safe.”
