People of all ranks and several roles have been awarded honours in a year that has truly tested the resolve and determination of those on the frontline.
The 2021 list includes a total of 49 police personnel honoured for their extraordinary contributions to policing. They’ve each been recognised for making a huge individual impact, and in particular in the response to COVID-19.
Chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Martin Hewitt, said:
“I congratulate all of those recognised for their service to policing in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List. It is great to see so many officers, staff and volunteers from across the country being awarded for their dedicated service, particularly during what has been an incredibly challenging year for us all.
“The awards highlight the commitment and hard work of policing to protect and keep our communities safe all year round and everyone should be rightly proud to be recognised in this way.”
