IPA Secretary General May-Britt Ronnebro Recipient of the Apoxiomeno 2020 Award

17 Oct 2020

Promoting the IPA is one of the key tasks of each IEB member. I was therefore extremely pleased that the IPA Secretary General, May-Britt V.R. Ronnebro, was amongst this year’s recipients of the Apoxiomeno International Award 2020.

The award was initiated by Orazio Anania, a Colonel of the Italian Carabinieri and chairperson of the Tuscan IPA, and the Apoxiomeno award, now in its 24th year, aims amonst other aspects, to recognise personalities who have heightened the image of the police through their work and professional activities.

This year’s event was marked by a gala evening on 25 August 2020 at the Villa Bertelli in Forte dei Marmi, and included awards in the categories of journalism, literature, culture and society, music, international cinema, arts, cinema and television.


May-Britt was presented with the Apoxiomeno award in the International Police category, for her involvement and role as ambassador for the Swedish National Symphony Orchestra, the delivery of further education to police officers worldwide, and her development of the Swedish Crime Harm Index. In addition to her IPA involvement, May-Britt delivers lectures and presentations on a wide variety of policing topics at universities, education facilities and conferences worldwide.

Congratulations from all IEB members to May-Britt on the Apoxiomeno 2020 Award, and thank you for promoting the IPA at every opportunity!
