British APCO supports control room awards
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

British APCO has registered its backing for APD’s Control Room Awards, which were launched earlier this year.

The awards are intended to recognise the work carried out by control room staff across the emergency services in their day-to-day duties. It is the first event of its kind in the UK.

Speaking of the association’s decision, British APCO’s chief executive Ian Thompson - who will be on the judging panel - said: “Many of our members hail from a control room environment, and we’re very keen to highlight the incredible work they do.

“When we heard about the APD Control Room Awards our board of directors were very eager to lend our support. It’s a cause very close to our hearts.”

Mike Isherwood, APD managing director, said: “We’re honoured to have the backing of British APCO. The association and its members truly understand the commitment and dedication of control room staff around the UK.

“We’re celebrating the individuals who save lives, reduce crime and make our communities a safer place to live. British APCO’s support in spreading the word of these awards is invaluable in recognising these unsung heroes.”

The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday March 8 2018, at the De Vere Orchard Hotel in Nottingham. Nominations are open until January 18, with the shortlist revealed on February 1.
