The regional winners of the Security Personnel Awards at the 2024 British Security Awards have been revealed.

MAN Commercial Protection Ltd have announced four regional winners from their team:

  • Best Newcomer: Paul Wheatley (transport safety officer)
  • Best Team: WMCA CCTV Control Room team
  • Best Team: Xscape Yorkshire security team
  • Service to the Customer: Gill Yardley (account director)

Paul Wheatley’s role as a transport safety officer is to tackle low level anti-social behaviour and improve the perception of safety for users of the transport network. Paul has reportedly made a huge impact since joining the team.

MAN Commercial Protection have employed highly-skilled CCTV Operators for the West Midlands Combined Authority’s busy Birmingham Control Room since 2012.

The Control Room operates round the clock, ensuring the safety and security of the West Midlands region, with over 200 monitors and 2500 cameras spanning four local authorities, busy public spaces such as town centres, bus and rail stations. Over the past 12 months, the team have been integral in capturing evidence of criminal activities as well as playing a crucial role in protecting vulnerable members of the community.

The security team at Xscape Yorkshire have had a fantastic 12 months. Security at this popular leisure destination in Castleford has been provided by MAN Commercial since 2022, and the team have frequently been recognised for their responses to a high level of challenging incidents, which include attempted abduction, assaults, anti-social behaviour and medical emergencies.

Account director Gill Yardley is a champion of customer service and has been in the security industry for over 30 years. MAN Commercial said Gill’s passion for MAN Commercial and delivering the highest possible standards make her a worthy winner.

Regional winners will go head-to-head to be named national champions at the British Security Awards 2024, which will be held on 3 July at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
