Top Gympie police receive awards
EXEMPLARY behaviour, commitment and dedication to duty are the hallmarks of our finest police officers.
At an official ceremony in Gympie yesterday, North Coast Region Chief Superintendent Lawrie Churchill presented Queensland Police Service medals and clasps to about 30 men and women from Gympie, Tin Can Bay and South Burnett districts in recognition of their diligence and ethical service.
Chief Superintendent Churchill said award ceremonies were an opportunity to publicly recognise and thank police officers for the amazing job they do and the enormous contribution they make to the community.
“These officers and staff members showcase the diverse range of talents, skills and attributes displayed daily by the people in the service,” he said.
“The important work these recipients carry out each day includes intelligence, traffic operations, drug investigations and general duties, as well as strategic management, administration and corporate support.
“Between them, these officers have contributed to well in excess of 350 years of exemplary service to their community.”
