Tilley awards

The Tilley awards recognise innovative crime fighting projects where police, community groups and the public successfully work together to identify and tackle local crime problems.

The Tilley awards recognise local initiatives that demonstrate three things:

  • the use of a problem-solving model
  • partnership-working
  • measurable and sustainable impact on crime reduction or community safety issues

The Tilley awards focus on a problem-solving approach that is known as SARA. This involves scanning, analysis, response, assessing:

scanning for problems that are a priority for the local community
analysing available evidence sources such as local crime data, local intelligence obtained from strategic and delivery partners and feedback from the local community
developing the best response to address the problem
assessing the impact of that response

We have received some very positive feedback from previous winners of the Tilley Awards:

  • 'Winning the award raised the profile of the partnership'
  • '… reinforced on a national scale what we were doing at a local level'
  • 'The ultimate accolade for those familiar with problem-solving'

The Tilley awards were set up in 1999 to recognise innovative crime fighting projects where police, local community safety agencies and the public are successfully working together to identify and tackle local crime problems.
