Year-on-year we are humbled to receive nominations for officers across 43 force areas - officers who have put the safety of others before themselves. From running into burning buildings, wading into deep waters, tackling armed offenders, being shot at, stabbed, driven at, the list goes on. Every officer we recognise at the Police Bravery Awards is an inspiration and we pay credit to their dedication to duty in the presence of senior officials in government and policing, culminating in an awards ceremony in central London.

These awards are a chance to celebrate the bravery and dedication of officers across England and Wales, those who think nothing of putting themselves in harm's way to protect others.

In 2022 we have 76 amazing nominees from 39 forces. You can read their phenomenal stories by clicking here.

These awards would not be possible without the support of Police Mutual, who have steadfastly sponsored the Police Bravery Awards for more than 10 years.
