Ribbon – Green centre bordered with white and broad blue stripes towards the edges.
Description – (obverse) the effigy of the reigning monarch; (reverse) a police truncheon superimposed on a laurel wreath.
Medal Information – Originally awarded to junior officers who had completer 18 years exemplary service but latterly awarded to offers of all ranks who have the required service qualification. A bar is awarded on completing 25 years service and a second bar after 30 years. These are represented on the ribbon bar in working dress by silver rosettes. The number (where applicable) rank and name as well as (for George VI and later issues) the relevant force in which the recipient is serving at the time of the award is engraved on the rim, often locally and therefore in a variety of styles.
