British Security Awards 2022 – security officers and businesses recognised as leading industry awards return to the live arena

The British Security Industry Association’s (BSIA’s) flagship event, the British Security Awards, returned to the live stage for the first time since July 2019 to recognise security officers and businesses working to keep people, property and places professionally protected during the last 18 months.

In an emotional return to the live arena in its 25th year, the British Security Awards, held at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square in front of a sold out audience, celebrated security excellence with 16 awards presented to security officers and businesses in front of clients and leading industry stakeholders. The show also featured the Chairman’s Award as well as the SaferCash Bravery Award, which recognised three members of the public for their courage in an armed robbery, and the Police Partnership Initiative Award, which recognised valuable work in reducing ATM crime.

The awards were presented by BAFTA nominated journalist Sam McAlister with the SaferCash awards being presented by Assistant Chief Constable of the West Midlands Police, Jayne Meir.

Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA, said: “The British Security Awards were created 25 years ago to recognise those in our industry and particularly those operating on the front line who frequently go above and beyond to protect people and property and this year we have seen a record number of entries.

“It was an honour and a privilege to be able to recognise our winners and finalists for their professionalism, innovation and commitment to our industry. The scale of achievement we see every year from across each sector is remarkable, and our awards enable us to recognise the outstanding work being carried out by members of both the Association and the wider industry in keeping people, property and places professionally protected on a daily basis.

“As always, the standard of nominations has been exceptional this year, and the judging panel, made up of independent experts from across the industry have had a very difficult job selecting the winners. It is therefore a fantastic achievement by all the finalists.”

The British Security Awards 2022 were sponsored by Camberford Underwriting, SaferCash, TEAM Software,

NSI, Texecom, Fenix Monitoring, OCS Group, Skills for Security, Galliford Try Asset Intelligence, Sentinel Group Security and IFSEC International and its official media partner was Security Matters.

For 2023, the awards will be returning again on Wednesday 28 June.
