Top University Safeguarding Team from Heriot-Watt University with partners CriticalArc have done it again by winning the 2019 Outstanding Security Team award at the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (The OSPA’s). Les Allan and Ross Ferguson received their award at the Royal Lancaster in London on 28 February 2019 from host Susannah Fish OBE QPM – former Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police. Our congratulations to Les and Ross, who are demonstrating to the security sector that university teams are indeed top of the class! We look forward to hearing all about it from Les at the conference next month.
OSPAs founder Professor Martin Gill commented “The OSPAs provide an independent platform to showcase excellence and outstanding performance across the sector ensuring that those who contribute to maintaining high standards are recognised and rewarded. Each year the calibre of the nominations exceeds expectations and makes the job of selecting the winners particularly challenging for the judging panel. All those that were selected as finalists and winners demonstrated that they really are the very best and should feel extremely proud.”
