The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has kicked off the 2021 British Security Awards with the regional rounds of the security personnel categories. This first phase of the awards will identify the regional winners and national finalists of the five security personnel categories: Best Newcomer, Best Team, Security Manager of the Year, Outstanding Act and Service to the Customer. The security personnel categories of the British Security Awards are sponsored by Camberford Underwriting.
There will be 16 categories overall in 2021 including: Innovative Security Project, National and International Partnership, Environmental Project of the Year, Business of the Year, Apprentice of the Year, Contribution to the Industry and Bravery. Entries for these categories will open on 8 February 2021.
“The British Security Awards is the national event that celebrates the talent and commitment of our industry’s finest,” said Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA. “The scale of achievement we see every year from across each sector is remarkable, and our awards enable us to recognise acts of untold bravery, ingenuity in the application of new technology and successful delivery of projects by forward thinking self-starters who work in our industry. After an incredibly difficult and challenging year for the industry, we are looking forward more than ever in rewarding these exemplars for the dedication to their chosen profession, and we are confident that by June we will be able to welcome members, stakeholders and colleagues from across the industry to join in with us at the London Marriott in celebrating security excellence.”
The British Security Awards are due to take place on Wednesday 30 June at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. The awards will celebrate the achievements made by security officers and teams across the UK’s private security industry, as well as acknowledging innovations in technology and business and the career contributions made by long-serving industry stalwarts. The Association anticipates that, after holding the event online in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions the event will go ahead in real time this year.
