About the Awards
Parramatta has over 230,000 residents and has been growing at the rate of around 3% per year.
As the unofficial capital of Western Sydney, it is a thriving city with a fast-growing urban centre that is home to one of the largest transport hubs in New South Wales.
Parramatta is also a destination for thousands of visitors every day – people come here to work, study, shop, eat out, enjoy our beautiful parks, visit our heritage landmarks and attend our many cultural and sporting events.
In this busy environment, the police officers and civilian staff of the Parramatta Police Area Command support the community and respond to its diverse needs, sometimes in very difficult circumstances and often in ways that aren’t easily acknowledged.
The annual Parramatta Police Officer of the Year Awards provide a great opportunity for the community to demonstrate its appreciation for the work carried out by the Police Area Command throughout the year.
In particular, the awards allow professional excellence and outstanding contributions by its police officers and civilian staff to be recognised and celebrated.
The awards also provide an opportunity to raise funds for specific community organisations each year.
The Parramatta Police Officer of the Year Awards are proudly coordinated and hosted by the Rotary Club of Parramatta, the Rotary Club of Parramatta City and the Rotary Club of Parramatta Daybreak. Rotary members volunteer their time and donate resources to organise and fundraise for community organisations during the awards. Please give generously!
Nominations are welcome for any member of the Parramatta Police Area Command between July 2017 and June 2018. The Parramatta Police Area Command includes Parramatta and Wentworthville Police Stations and covers the suburbs of Constitution Hill, North Parramatta, Northmead, Old Toongabbie, Parramatta, Toongabbie, Wentworthville, Westmead and Winston Hills.
