Students and staff attend The Livia Award at Portcullis House
On Tuesday 7th November, students and staff from St Clement Danes School attended the Livia Award, held at Portcullis House, Westminster. The award honours outstanding investigative work by police officers in the Roads and Transport Policing Command of the Metropolitan Police Service. The officers investigate serious injury and death on the roads, and also offer support to families of those affected, through family liaison work.
The award ceremony has been held annually following the tragic death of St Clement Danes student Livia Galli-Atkinson in 1998. The Livia Award for Professionalism and Service to Justice was created in memory of Livia, who was killed on the 12 January 1998 by a driver who mounted the pavement in his car, striking her as she was walking to her ballet class. The first award ceremony was held the following year in 1999. A number of staff and students were privileged to attend this year’s ceremony. Guest speakers included The Right Honourable The Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service,Cressida Dick,CBE,QPM, Members of Parliament and officers from the Metropolitan Police Service, all of whom spoke eloquently and with passion about road safety measures and legislation.The guests heard the details of the officers who were nominated for awards before presentations were made to these worthy recipients.
Guests enjoyed an outstanding musical performance by the Metropolitan Police Service Choir.
