There is just one week left to enter submissions to the 2019/20 Tilley Awards, which officially close on Monday 28 October 2019.

The awards, which are open to police forces, and their partners, in England and Wales, showcase and celebrate the problem solving and demand reduction initiatives introduced in response to local and national issues.

This year’s awards are again broken down into five categories: Neighbourhoods, Police Now and Student Officers, Investigations, Partners, and Business Support and Volunteers. A winner for each category will be chosen and the five finalists will be invited to the National Problem Solving Conference in March 2020, to present their projects to a panel of expert judges who will choose an overall winner.

To submit an application to the awards or to read the guidance for entrants, please visit the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction website here-

The nationally recognised awards were relaunched by the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction Programme in 2018, as part of the three year programme of work to transform ways of working across police and partners by sharing and embedding problem solving initiatives nationally.

Copies of last year’s submissions can be viewed and downloaded from the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction Knowledge Hub page here.

Entrants can also submit questions and project draft narratives to a panel of advisors, made up of experts working within problem solving roles from both police forces and public sector organisations, to gain feedback and guidance on their applications. Information and details of how this process works is explained in the guidance document on the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction website.

The Tilley Awards are one of a number of different work streams commissioned by the programme to improve ways of working and reduce demand. These work streams include Learning and Development, NPCC workshops and CONNECT Partner, amongst others. Further details on these work streams and our programme is available here.
