Communications Award

Winner: Pool Re / Counter Terrorism Policing

The Communications Award recognises communication systems and their potential to assist organisations in both threat detection and post-terrorism communication between governmental and emergency service organisations. In previous years, this award has recognised the use of Body Worn Video technology and real-time footage from UAVs.

The 2020 winner of the Communication Award is Pool Re and Counter Terrorism Policing. Alongside the Joint Security and Resilience Centre, Pool Re has been recognised for its efforts to provide businesses holistic access to timely and accurate information in the event of an attack, by using an interactive online platform to provide secure expert counter terrorism advice.

The £10 million project is being funded by Pool Re and led by Counter Terrorism Policing, in partnership with the Joint Security and Resilience Centre, part of the Home Office.

The Metropolitan Police and Counter Terrorism Policing’s ACT Awareness eLearning package were shortlisted for this award.
