The Queen has bestowed the Queen’s Police Medal on Hampshire Chief Constable Alex Marshall. As we announced back in June QPM For Hampshire Chief Constable, Mr Marshall attended Windsor Castle, this week to be formally presented with his medal.
Mr Marshall, who has just completed his first year as chief constable of Hampshire, was included in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list and received the Queen’s Police Medal from Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle (pictured) on Tuesday, November 10th.
The medal is awarded to police officers in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth for distinguished service.
Following the ceremony, Mr Marshall said:
“I am a very lucky man. Today, I have been to Windsor Castle and been honoured with a QPM by Her Majesty.
“The ceremony took place in fantastic surroundings. I felt very proud to accept the medal as the leader of an excellent constabulary.
“In many ways I am being rewarded for the hard work of everyone who works for Hampshire Constabulary, and I am grateful for the support I have been given throughout my 30 years as a police officer.”
