Deputy Chief Constable Karen Manners presented with her Queens Police Medal

Warwickshire Police Deputy Chief Constable Karen Manners went to Buckingham Palace on Thursday 23 November to receive her Queen's Police Medal (QPM) from HRH the Prince of Wales.

DCC Karen Manners was named in the 2017 Queen's New Year's Honours to receive the award, which is given to police officers in recognition of gallantry or distinguished service. Karen was awarded her QPM for her distinguished service over the last 30 years.

Chief Constable Martin Jelley QPM said "Karen has been awarded the Queen's Police Medal due in large part to her dedication, commitment and passion when leading the way in protecting our public over the last 30 years, especially in the areas of Child Neglect.

"Karen is an extremely talented senior police leader who each and every day is focused on protecting people from harm in Warwickshire. She is widely respected by our workforce, partners and nationally for her leadership and drive around protecting the most vulnerable."

Following her investiture, Karen said "I am both humbled and honoured to have been selected to receive the QPM, and to have it presented by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is an experience I will never forget."
