The winners were selected by an esteemed panel of judges and the awards were presented in 11 categories to public, private and third sector organisations and individuals who had made a significant impact in desisting all areas of economic crime.

Professor Martin Gill, founder of the TECAs, commented: “We were delighted to hold the presentation of the TECAs for the second year - all be it virtually - to recognise the sector’s achievements at the end of such a challenging year. All the finalists and especially the winners should be proud. The judging process is strict and robust; each judge marks independently against a set of criteria, and they commit to declaring any conflict of interest. Each entry must achieve a fixed score threshold to become a finalist, ensuring consistent quality across the competition, which means all the finalists – individuals, teams and companies represent outstanding performance of the highest level.”
