Queen’s Birthday Honours List recognises police officers, staff and volunteers - UPDATED: Officer on patrol at night

Police officers, staff and volunteers from forces across the country have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Police colleagues of all ranks and several roles have been awarded honours.

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 Birthday Honours List, and am pleased to see so many officers, staff and volunteers from across the country being awarded for their contributions to local communities and public safety.

“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.”
