Surrey Police with their project Operation Blink have now been added as our third shortlist finalist to the neighbourhood category.

Following a re-review of the sift judges scores and feedback, Surrey Police’s submission Operation Blink, has been identified as one of the highest scoring projects in the neighbourhood category and added as an additional shortlist finalist.

Please note the two current neighbourhood category finalists scored the same average overall score and Surrey police scored a higher overall average score, therefore the three projects will now form the shortlist for this category.

A recap of all the category winners is below:

Police Now and Student Officers:

  • North Wales Police – Secure Your PDQ
  • GMP – A partnership approach to tackling the growing prevalence of public sex encounters in a busy city centre


  • West Yorkshire Police - Focused Forensic Marking to Deter and Detect Domestic Abuse
  • Surrey Police – Basingstoke Canal Sexual Exposures

Business Support and Volunteers:

  • Metropolitan Police - Anti-Social Behaviour Reporting Compliance
  • Surrey Police – Basingstoke Canal Sexual Exposures


  • West Yorkshire Police – BD3 Unite
  • South Yorkshire Police – Operation Grow


  • Surrey Police – Operation Blink
  • West Yorkshire Police – BD3 Unite
  • Merseyside Police – E2 Serious Violence

Our final judging panel, which consists of problem solving leads and subject matter experts from across the country, will now mark each of the shortlisted entries to identify the overall category winners.

Each member of the panel will use the same judging criteria as the sift judges, and we will announce the final category winners on Monday 5th September. Once announced, each category winner will be invited to present their projects to the judging panel and audience members at the National Problem Solving Conference in October. The judging panel and audience members will mark the presentations and the high scoring project will be awarded as the overall 2022 Tilley Award winner.

Congratulations again to all of our category winners and we are looking forward to finding out who the overall winners will be later this year.
