The Sheriffs' Award
The Sheriffs' Award Book of Honour
The City of London Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery is awarded annually to recognise people who without thought for their own safety have acted to confront danger to another person or property and to celebrate such selflessness as an inspiration to other citizens.
The Award is a highly prestigious one with the winner receiving a trophy, a framed certificate and, from 2014, a cheque for £2,500. By order of the Sheriffs their names are 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'.
The search for nominations begins in February each year at the Old Bailey during a ceremony presided over by the Sheriffs. Later in the year the Sheriffs select the Award winner and a deserving list of runners-up.
Nominations are sought from across the United Kingdom and are open to members of the public as well as members of the Emergency Services and the Armed Forces and people employed in the Security Industry.
