Police thanked for their work in disasters and daily duties
MARYBOROUGH Police Patrol Group officers have been recognised for their service to the community in a ceremony at the Hervey Bay PCYC on Thursday morning.
More than 50 officers attended the ceremony, recognising the outstanding work of local police in daily-duties and times of disaster.
Maryborough Patrol Group Inspector Paul Biggin said the morning was about recognising the achievements and long service of officers.
"Police certainly don't seek recognition and they don't seek awards," he said.
"It's important we acknowledge not only the long service of Queensland Police officers who are receiving medals today but also the great work they've done during that service."
