Recognising the valuable contribution the security sector makes in protecting people, property and assets, the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) showcase the very best organisations and individuals that the sector has to offer and acknowledge their considerable achievements.

The independent panel of judges nominated by supporting associations have selected the 2021 finalists who will now go forward to the next phase of the competition.
