Speaking at the  event Mrs. Winner said:

“The officers who have been nominated displayed the very best of the British police service and demonstrate what policing is all about – ordinary people doing extraordinary deeds”.

She added:

“It is such a privilege to be in the company of so many heroes. They so deserve this special evening, they really are the best of the best. I’d like to thank the Police Federation for hosting this wonderful event”

Each one of the UK’s police forces had nominated an officer(s) who had carried out an act of extreme bravery. 

The overall winner was Metropolitan Police officer PC Stuart Outten, who despite having been attacked and seriously injured by a man armed with a machete managed to disarm and arrest him.
