All three finalists in the ‘Security Consultancy’ category of the UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAS) were drawn from the Association of Security Consultant (ASC) members:
Praemunitus Ltd, Police Capacity Building Team, Somaliland
ASC members Joe Connell & Steve Beels
ASC member Bob Martin
Ian Johnson Associates Limited
ASC member Nick Johnson
‘This was a great achievement for the ASC’ says ASC Chairman Joe Connell ‘2017 is the first year these global awards came to the UK and it is hugely gratifying that all three finalists in the ‘Security Consultancy’ category were drawn from the Association of Security Consultants, which of course is the UK’s leading association for independent security consultancy. This is a win, not only for the finalists, but for all ASC members who represent a hugely diverse range of security-related skill sets backed by a strong code of professional conduct’.
Praemunitus Ltd went on to win in both the ‘Security Consultancy’ and ‘Investigator’ categories based on their extensive police capacity building programmes conducted in Somaliland between 2011 and 2016
The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) recognise and reward companies and individuals across the security sector. The OSPAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers whether individuals or companies to be recognised and their success to be celebrated. The OSPAs are set up in collaboration with security associations and groups across many countries.
