Two new entries for the Honours, Decorations and Medals list.
A divisional commander who started at BTP when he was just 19, and a Sussex man who volunteered more than 500 hours to policing last year have both been named on the 2017 New Year’s Honours List.
Chief Superintendent Martin Fry, the divisional commander for London and the South East, has been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal (QPM).
And Special Sergeant Mark Walder, who volunteers for both the British Transport Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service, has been awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM).
Congratulations to them both.
