Securitas celebrates outstanding performance at annual Community Awards


Securitas UK hosted its annual Community Awards on Wednesday 16 October. In its tenth year, the Community Awards recognise the outstanding efforts of Securitas teams and individuals over the last 12 months.


Winners were awarded in ten different categories; outstanding act, leadership, team, safety first, innovation, community, helpfulness, vigilance, integrity and core values. This year’s finalists were all quarterly Community Award winners, nominated during the year and judged by a panel of Securitas colleagues. 


The National Gallery was announced as winner of the Good Customer Award with Westfield highly commended. The award recognises customers who work in partnership with Securitas to raise security standards and shape best practice in the industry.


Shaun Kennedy, Country President at Securitas UK commented: “Many congratulations to this year’s winners and finalists – they are a credit to both Securitas and the security industry. Every one of them represents the commitment, bravery and passion that drive our six protective services. It’s important that we recognise and celebrate how our officers help make the world a safer place.


“I was also delighted to see the National Gallery and Westfield recognised on the night. The Good Customer award is a significant part of Community Awards, as it acknowledges the importance of collaboration to raise standards and ensure security is at the top of the business agenda.”


Shaun Kennedy also presented the Country President’s Award. The award recognises the outstanding contribution of Securitas colleagues and the team members of a valued client who implemented a pioneering approach to safety and security across client’s portfolio. The accolade was rewarded to the Securitas fire division in partnership with Aviva.


Securitas raised £1700 on the night for charity partner Wooden Spoon. Established in 1983, Wooden Spoon has distributed more than £26 million to over 700 projects, helping over 1 million disabled and disadvantaged children.
