Tilley Awards 2012: Have your say – vote for your favourite crime fighting project
Gang violence slashed, organised crime dismantled, city-centre violence cut, anti-social behaviour reduced. The Tilley Awards public vote is now live and the online poll closes on the 2 November and the winner will be announced alongside the top three entries judged by an expert panel, in December.
The Tilley Awards were set up in 1999 and are named after Professor Nick Tilley, who has carried out considerable work in the UK, to develop problem-oriented policing. The awards are funded by the Home Office to encourage and spread best practice in crime fighting approaches across England and Wales.
More than 70 projects entered this year’s competition. The public vote closes on 2 November.
Minister of State for Crime Prevention Jeremy Browne said: ‘The Tilley Awards are recognised across the world for highlighting the very best of British crime fighting and this year is no exception. Today’s finalists should be proud that they have beaten some tough competition to make it through to the finals.
‘These projects show that when police, councils, charities and the public work together they can make the real, positive changes to issues that matter to local communities.
‘I want the public to feel as engaged as possible in how crime is tackled locally which is why we are once again opening the shortlisted entries to a public vote. I would encourage anyone to view the excellent projects on the Tilley Awards shortlist and select their favourite.’
