The reception for the Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery 2022 was recently held in the Judges Dining Room at the Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey in the City of London.

The event was introduced by Michael Thwaites, Junior Warden of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals with Alderman & Sheriff Nicholas Lyons reminding the audience that the Sheriffs’ Award recognises individuals who, without thought to their own safety, have acted to confront danger to another person and celebrates such selflessness as an inspiration to other citizens.
The Award is a highly prestigious one with the Principal Recipient receiving a trophy, a framed certificate, and a cheque for £2,500; and by order of the Sheriffs, their name is permanently inscribed on the Honours Board and in the Book of Honour, both of which are on permanent display at the Old Bailey.
Nominations are sought from across the United Kingdom and are open to any person, whether members of the public, the Emergency Services, Armed Forces, or people employed in the Security Industry. The closing date for this year’s nominations is 1st August 2022.
