Answered By: 
The Mayor

Over the last 5 years, three London officers were awarded the Queen’s Police Medal (QPM) for Gallantry, and one officer was awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal (QGM).


Additionally, the Commissioner has awarded 395 officers his Commendation. All performed their duty in an outstanding manner far above which would be expected for their rank, training, and experience; they displayed a high degree of bravery above which would normally be expected, or acted with supreme courage, placing themselves in greater danger than they need or the call of duty requires and are aware of the possibility of serious personal injury.
