From West Midlands Police:
BACK in October West Midlands Police opened nominations for the brand new, now annual, Diamond Awards.
The awards were launched to recognise and reward members of the police family and key members of the community for their outstanding work and dedication over the last 12 months.
Open for anyone to nominate, it is fair to say that the public’s response to awards has been fantastic. At the time of writing nearly 200 nominations have been received for individuals and teams across the entire organisation and they are still coming in. However the closing date of this Friday (16 November) is fast approaching.
Chief Constable Chris Sims said: “We are delighted at the response we have received from the community and I would like to personally thank those who have taken the time to nominate.
“It really does only take a few minutes to put someone forward, so if you know an individual, or team that deserves to be recognised – whether it be for a fantastic piece of work or for a long standing community initiative – this is your chance to show them that they are valued.”
Anyone can make a nomination for police officers, police staff, PCSOs or special constables across a range of ten categories including:
- Working in Partnership
- Community Engagement
- Excellence In Service Delivery
- Driving Diversity
- Leading Change
- Creativity And Innovation
- Inspirational Leadership
- Putting The Public First
- Team Of The Year

There is also a special category the Community ‘Thank You’ award to recognise an individual or group that have worked closely with the police to make a real difference to the community.
