This judging panel will consist of South Yorkshire Police Chief Constable Lauren Poultney, problem solving subject matter experts Gloria Laycock, Sylvia Chennery and Rachel Tuffin, Professor Stuart Kirby, Professor Nick Tilley and Home Office Strategy Lead Stephen Carr, who will all mark the presentations using the same good practice problem solving methodology used to mark the written submissions.

NPCC Lead for Problem Solving, South Yorkshire Police Chief Constable, Lauren Poultney congratulates the winners, “I would like to personally congratulate all five winners. All the projects are of an exceptional calibre, and it is wonderful to see how problem solving methodology is being used across all areas of policing to address the root cause of a problem and improve the services we provide to our communities.

“I’d also like to thank everyone else who entered a submission to the awards. There were over 100 projects entered this year, which truly highlights how knowledge and practical use of problem solving has grown over recent years and become further embedded as a core pillar in policing.

“I’m looking forward to viewing all the winning projects presentations and finding out who the overall winner will be.”

The 2023 Tilley Award winner will be announced on Wednesday 4th October at the National Problem Solving Conference gala dinner.

The Tilley Awards are facilitated by the National Problem Solving and Crime Prevention Programme, led by South Yorkshire Police on behalf of all forces. Further information on the programme is available here.
