The joint ceremony held by North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service recognises outstanding work by officers, staff and volunteers of both organisations.

From bravery on the frontline to unsung heroes working behind the scenes to keep the people of North Yorkshire safe, the awards highlight the very best of our police and fire services.

The award ceremony will be held in November and will see awards presented in 27 categories across both organisations.

Voting for the Public Choice Award is now open, giving you the opportunity to decide who should win the coveted honour of being the people’s choice. The four finalists for each service have been selected from the 27 winners from both organisations.

Zoë Metcalfe, North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, said:

“The Public Choice Awards remind us to recognise and highlight the extraordinary work that our brave Officers, Firefighters, volunteers and other Police and Fire staff provide to go above and beyond for our communities, helping people to be safe and feel safe wherever they are and whatever they are doing.

“One of the priorities within both my Police & Crime and Fire & Rescue plans is to enhance positive culture, openness, integrity and public trust in Police and Fire services, with a personal pledge to work tirelessly to restore and renew that trust if confidence has been shaken.

“These awards present the opportunity to reinforce confidence by showcasing some of the amazing work being done across York and North Yorkshire, and I want to personally say thank you to North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service for continuing to work hard to protect us during challenging times.”
