Product Description

Australian Police Overseas Service Medal: This Medal was established in 1991 to recognise service with international peacekeeping organisations by officers of Australian police forces. The Governor-General makes awards of the Medal on the recommendation of the Chief Officer of an Australian police force. The award of the Medal is made with a clasp to denote the area of prescribed service and any subsequent award to the same person is made in the form of a further clasp with the prescribed service appropriately inscribed. To date, Australian police men and women have made remarkable contributions to peacekeeping and policing around the world in such countries as Cyprus (ongoing), Cambodia, Mozambique, Somalia, Haiti, Bougainville, and most recently in East Timor.
