The Sheriffs’ Award

by Mark Rowe

The Sheriffs’ Award for bravery each year celebrates heroes who have contributed to safeguarding our “people, property or our liberty.” The award was instituted by the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals, after the London bombings in 2005 and is awarded by the Sheriffs of the City of London. This year’s launch was online and presided over by Alderman Sheriff Professor Michael Mainelli, and Sheriff Chris Hayward.

The winner will receive a trophy, a framed citation of their act and a cheque for £2,500. By order of the Sheriffs, the recipient’s name is permanently inscribed on an Honours Board and in a Book of Honour which are on permanent display at the Central Criminal Court – ‘The Old Bailey’, in central London.

Nominations for the Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery are sought from across the UK, and are open to any person, whether members of the public, the emergency services, the armed forces and people employed in the security industry.

If you know someone who deserves to be nominated, submit your nomination on the website at or contact the Clerk, Adrienne Harper on 01256 395036.
