A Guide: Medals & Awards to British Police by Local Authorities of the United Kingdom by David Picton-King
In the absence of official medals for gallantry, meritorious and long service unofficial awards are often created. In the case of the police forces of the United Kingdom gallantry was not recognised until the introduction of the King’s Police Medal in 1909 and long service in the regular police was not recognised until 1951. Many local authorities filled the gap and issued their own medals. This is a comprehensive guide to known local authority awards, gathered together for the first time.
