Arriva London CCTV team win prestigious Met Police awards
Each year the Metropolitan police hold an awards ceremony at New Scotland Yard to reward CCTV professionals for their endeavours in London.
The on-bus CCTV systems are designed to make travelling in London a safer experience, and Arriva London regularly receives requests from police officers for CCTV footage, to assist them in investigating incidents that have occurred on or around their buses.
The MPS/TfL Bus CCTV Awards, held this week, recognise excellence in the use and management of on-bus CCTV, and Arriva London is extremely proud to announce that their CCTV team have been successful in winning two of the prestigious awards, together with commendations for three individuals in the team.
The Best CCTV Operator award went to the Arriva London CCTV data control room, with the Best CCTV Analyst award being won by Arriva London's Senior CCTV analyst Paul Bonny who was
"Commended for his commitment, dedicated approach and showing true professionalism providing on-bus CCTV evidence for serious investigations".
Paul also received a further commendation together with his colleagues John Keating and Robert Sawyer, they were
"Commended for their total dedication and instrumental approach with the use of on-bus CCTV and technical support to the Metropolitan Police and other law enforcement agencies"
Paula Tansley, Arriva London's Risk manager said:-
" I am very pleased and honoured that my team have received these awards, and am very proud of them".

Last summer, we were delighted to be awarded the contract from TfL to operate route W4 running from Oakthorpe Park Estate to Tottenham Ferry Lane estate, operating from Wood Green garage.
As part of our commitment to developing our business, we invest heavily in training for all of our staff to offer the great customer experience. We also look at other ways in which we can develop our relationships with the communities we serve, and allow them the opportunity of learning about our processes and to meet some of the team.
Over the past few months we have been working with TfL, conducting Accessibility Awareness forums at our garages.
Doing the right thing, one of our four brand values, is what we have been doing for the last six years by encouraging all of our employees to give to their favourite charities through our Payroll Giving scheme - during this time, they have given more than £1,000,000 pounds to over 160 charities.
Going to school is something we all had to do, but going to school with a red London double-decker bus, and letting four classes from year one come on board to ask questions about the bus, is a privilege we experienced this week at Newbury Park Primary School in North East London.
Last June, Arriva London was delighted to have been re-awarded the TfL contract to run route W6 (Edmonton Green – Southgate Station) for a further five years, starting in January 2018 with brand new buses.
