NPCC Lead for Problem Solving and host of the National Conference, South Yorkshire Police Chief Constable Lauren Poultney, has commented on the shortlist, “I would like to congratulate all of our ten shortlist and thank everyone who entered a submission to this year’s awards.

“Each year the calibre of projects entered increases, and once again this year’s entries are amongst some of the best examples we’ve seen of problem solving methodology used in practice.

“This is testament to the work all police forces and our partners are doing to embed this into our ways of working and I’m pleased we are able to showcase and celebrate this via the Tilley Awards.

“I’m also pleased we have this year been able to change the format of the awards to allow the best problem solving initiatives to receive recognition. As demonstrated through many of this year’s entrants, problem solving methodology can be used across all areas of policing and by removing the categories used in previous years, we are able to celebrate and showcase this on a national platform.

“I would like to wish all members of the shortlist good luck and I’m looking forward to finding out who the five winning finalists will be.”

The winning finalists will be announced on Monday 28th August.
