Entries must have been published between September 1, 2022, and August 31, 2023, both dates inclusive, with participants submitting a maximum of five entries in each of the three categories.

Human Values Award 2023

The Human Values Award 2023, aims to recognise the actions of members of the National Police that best highlight the vocation of service, dedication and sacrifice of officers in their work of protection and assistance to citizens. This applies to officers whether or not they are on duty.

This award is also open to any citizen who has carried out actions of the same nature, in collaboration with the National Police or in aid of one of its members or in defence of public safety.

Any member of the National Police, between August 31, 2022, and August 31, who has stood out for their work in protecting and assisting citizens, or a person from outside the police force who meets the aforementioned requirements, may apply for the award.
