Professor Grieve CBE QPM is recognised for a lifetime achievement award
Recipients of these awards, who are nominated by their peers, regularly challenge hatred, racism, prejudice and extremism. The awards ceremony took place during hate crime awareness week.
Professor Grieve said: “I was proud and humbled to be nominated and shortlisted in this category; but I have always insisted I am part of a team, never alone, in trying to achieve whatever we did.
“The teams that I have been part of include the John Grieve Centre for Policing and Community Safety at London Met, which I have been part of for the past 12 years. I was also part of policing teams and teams of communities and independent advisory groups.”
The No2H8 Crime Awards were created and co-ordinated by Faith Matters which developed, implemented and co-ordinated the national Tell MAMA project, which supports victims of anti-Muslim hatred. It also monitors anti-Muslim hatred across the United Kingdom.
The awards were supported by 17 other organisations which all challenge hate crime in the UK and included other faiths and institutions which work to combat all dimensions of discrimination and hatred.
The winner of the lifetime achievement award was Dr David Hoffman, an internationally renowned press photographer.
The John Grieve Centre for Policing and Community Safety is based at London Metropolitan University. It offers a wide range of professional doctorate degrees taught by world leading policing experts.
