A former officer, Insp Kevin Jacobs, has been recognised by the magazine with a nomination for the lifetime achievement in policing award.
Mr Bliss said Mr Jacobs, who retired in September after 30 years' service, was an “outstanding officer whose extraordinary qualities and contribution to policing have been recognised year on year by his colleagues and the local community alike”.
He has been singled out for praise by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary for his leadership on the Maldon crime and disorder reduction partnership.
The ceremony will be held in London at The Brewery tonight, hosted by Crimewatch UK presenter of Crimewatch UK.
