Now in its third year, the Police Scotland C3 Division awards recognise the good work, dedication and the many achievements of staff across Contact, Command and Control.
The ceremony took place on the evening of Thursday 25 April 2019 at the prestigious Police Scotland College, Tulliallan and was attended by over 100 members of the force, including the winners who were nominated by peers, colleagues, supervisors and managers.
At the ceremony, 19 awards were presented to recognise individuals and teams in the below categories.
Teamwork – when teamwork was a critical factor in achieving a favourable outcome to a situation;
Outstanding Performer – for an individual who consistently delivers an outstanding level of performance which exceeds the expectations of his/her role;
Making a Difference – for an individual or team who has made a real difference to the community, member of the public or colleague;
Above and Beyond – for an individual or team who has gone above and beyond the expectations of their role.
Continuous Endeavour – for an individual who has demonstrated sustained commitment and enthusiasm for his/her role;
Health, Safety and Wellbeing – for an individual or team who has made a significant contribution to health, safety or wellbeing.
Police Scotland has established the scheme to recognise its staff within C3 Division.
Award winners are selected after a transparent decision-making process for performing work related duties to a standard that exceeds the normal expectations of their role.
Why we wanted to pledge our support?
As part of our commitment to the control room community, we’re proud to support Police Scotland as a sponsor of the C3 Division awards scheme.
Pledging our backing, we sponsored the highly-respected ACC Award, bestowed on a member of staff by Assistant Chief Constable John Hawkins for truly exceptional performance.
Our Managing Director, Mike Isherwood, was invited to the ceremony to present this award to the winner – Kirsty Findlay – who was recognised for her outstanding achievements. Gordon Meldrum QPM, our Strategic Policing Advisor, was also in attendance at the awards event.
Kirsty was also named a finalist as the Control Room Call Taker of the Year in the APD Control Room Awards, which was held on 7 March 2019 at the De Vere Orchard Hotel in Nottingham and attended by over 200 people. These awards were created to acknowledge professional achievements across the national and international control room community and received nearly 400 nominations.
