The 2019 NSW Police Awards will be held on Friday 8thNovember at the new Hyatt Regency, Darling Harbour, Sydney. 
The Rotary Clubs of NSW 2019 NSW Police Officer of the Year Awards
Dear Rotarians,
I am sure you all know about the NSW Police awards now in their tenth successful year and I thank your Club and District for all the past support. 
This year’s event will be held on Friday 8thNovember at the new Hyatt Regency, Darling Harbour, Sydney. We expect about 600 guests to attend including our Police Commissioner and Police Minister and hope your club will have some representatives there to support a local officer should there be a finalist from your area. You will find booking link below.
Police Officers who win a local Rotary award in 2019 are automatically eligible for the State Award. All nominations (including local Rotary winners) then go to a judging panel made up of long serving Rotarians from a cross section of the Districts from which the finalists for the evening will be chosen. Each category will have three finalists and you will be notified of who the finalists are four weeks before the event.
If I could ask the following of you it will go a long way to once again making this a highlight on the NSW Police calendar.
  • I would ask that you nominate someone in your club to promote this event in your area. Club Website, Newsletters and club meetings.
  • If you already have your own local Police Officer of the Year award make sure you contact the Local Area Commander and have them submit the nomination as it can only be done through the Police intranet. They will be contacted by the Commissioner’s office shortly on how that is done. 
  • You may only have one winner of the local award but the Commander should be encouraged to make nominations in some of the other 7 categories.
  • Can you notify me directly of your local winner so I can double check when we receive the nomination from the Commander.
  • If you do not currently run a local Police Officer of the Year award I encourage you give some thought to starting one and join the many others we have running in NSW
  • The Customer Service Award and the IJ Award nominationsare open to all Rotarians and the General Public. The on-line links to these can be found below. Please encourage your members to make some nominations. NOTE: On-Line Nominations opened on the 2ndJuly 2019
  • Please find a promotional flyer and details of award categories attached to this email.
