Police Federation congratulates police officers who celebrate the New Year by making the Honours List 2016

30 December 2015

Dozens of police officers and staff have been recognised in this year’s New Year’s honours.

A total of 51 officers from across the UK and the UK’s overseas dependencies were handed awards.

These included MBEs, OBEs, the British Empire Medal and 24 officers who received the Queen’s Police Medal.

Georgette Fulton, the mother of PC Lewis Fulton, who was murdered while on duty in Glasgow in 1994 was awarded the OBE for services to Care of Police Survivors, St. Andrew’s First Aid and the community in New Cumnock, Ayrshire.

Roger Nield, a former inspector from Surrey Police, a prolific and well known user of Twitter, received the MBE for services to neighbourhood policing particularly through social media.

Recipients of the QPM included Simon Bailey, chief constable of Norfolk Constabulary; Martin Jelley, chief constable of Warwickshire Police; Simon Byrne, chief constable of Cheshire Constabulary; and Ian Dyson, assistant commissioner, of City of London Police.

Steve White, chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “Congratulations to the 51 individuals who gained their honours for their distinguished service either as police officers or those who support policing in their local communities.

“At a time when police budgets are stretched and communities challenged in times of heightened awareness, police officers and those who support policing have had to routinely go above and beyond the call of duty and often risk their lives to keep the community safe.

“The Police Federation welcomes that they are acknowledged, thanked and honoured with the nation’s most prestigious recognition for their exemplary service and commitment and I hope we will see ever more police officers nominated in this way in the years to come.”
