Lincolnshire Police were part of a team recognised for its collaboration work aimed at understanding how police services can improve officer welfare.
Chief Superintendent Kate Anderson attended the finals at Oxford University, along with colleagues, to collect the award.
The collaboration stretched across continents with a team consisting of colleagues from Leicestershire Police, The Australian Institute of Police Management, Taber Police (Canada), New Zealand Parliament, The US Department of Homeland Security, and the Canadian Forces’ Military Police, all dedicated to identifying ways they could better support their colleagues.
The collaboration work includes encouraging a holistic approach in looking at individual officer welfare and programmes such as fitness mentoring.
Chief Superintendent Kate Anderson, East Area Commander, said: ‘It was great to be a part of this international project aimed at improving officer welfare, and to be a part of such a motivated team who are all committed to making any improvements required.
“We are all overwhelmed to have received this excellence in collaboration award from Oxford University for our efforts. And I look forward to working with our Health and Care Team to implement some of the ideas.”
