2023 City of London Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery: Call for Nominations

THE WORSHIPFUL Company of Security Professionals has issued a Call for Nominations for the 2023 City of London Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery. The Sheriffs’ Award is a national award that celebrates heroes who’ve contributed to safeguarding “people, property or liberty”.

The award was instituted by The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals subsequent to the London bombings in 2005 and is awarded annually by the Sheriffs of the City of London.

The launch for the 2023 scheme took place at the Annual Dinner of The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals, which was held at The Mansion House – the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London – in front of nigh on 200 security professionals and guests.

Middle Warden Michael Thwaites delivered a brief history of the Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery following the reading of the citation for the principal recipient of this year’s award, namely Rayan Bouguerra. City of London Sheriff Andrew Marsden then formally opened nominations for 2023.

Unique and prestigious

The Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery is both unique and highly prestigious. The winner receives a trophy, a framed citation of their act of bravery and also a cheque for £5,000.

By order of the Sheriffs, the recipient’s name is permanently inscribed on an Honours Board and in a Book of Honour which are on permanent display at the Central Criminal Court (ie The Old Bailey).

Nominations for the Sheriffs’ Award for Bravery are sought from across the UK and are open to any individual, including members of the public, the Emergency Services, the Armed Forces and those employed in the security industry.

*If you know someone who deserves to be nominated, please submit your nomination on the website at or contact Adrienne Harper (clerk of The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals) via e-mail at
