Public service nomination for Office of South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

A leading police commissioner could be in line for an award for excellence to public service.

The Office of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings has been shortlisted for an Association for Public Service Excellence Award.

The office has also been shortlisted in the Best Collaborative Working Initiative section in recognition of the decommissioning of a police station in Sheffield and its remodelling of a regional sexual assault referral centre (SARC).

Working in collaboration with NHS England, South Yorkshire Police, Kier Group PLC and victim support services, the building opened by the Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings and Sarah Champion MP provides a facility for forensic medical examinations, acute medical care and for crisis support to victims of rape and sexual assault.

  1. Association for Public Service Excellence Award
    Best Collaborative Working Initiative section

    Awards for doing their job, for which they are paid handsomely from the public purse.
    Then again , I suppose in South Yorkshire even someone just doing their job adequately without being corrupt or negligent must be worth something.

  2. Organisations write / submit their own nominations. A panel at APSE read / shortlist

    This award nomination seems to be about the partnership work which happens to involve the PCC – if they have made things better for people reporting sexual assaults then why not tell people about it?
    Yes Paul, it is an award (potentially) for people doing the job they are paid to do but even public servants should be recognised when they do a good job – they won’t win money or a car or holiday – just a trophy

  3. RMBC’s Innovations Manager Tom Sweetman has an entire wall in his office full of awards!
    I looked at them with astonishment thinking they do not reflect the service the people of this town receive from the council. Then I was told that RMBC nominate other councils for awards and they reciprocate by nominating them. It’s simply a case of you scratch my back!
