Former Bromley police officer Neill Tully has been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in the New Year Honours List.

Pc Tully retired in August following a 30-year career.

He served the majority of his career as a youth engagement officer and began the Bromley Volunteer Police Cadet (VPC) unit in November 2001 with 14 cadets.

He has recruited vulnerable and troubled children, steering some from a life of crime. Due to his commitment and dedication, the VPC has grown steadily over the past 15 years to 150 cadets; whilst raising more than £3,000 to support UK Care of Police Survivors charity (Cops).

Mr Tully said of his award: “It was such a surprise, I am truly honoured and humbled that Her Majesty has chosen to recognise my 30 years police service.

“I consider the QPM as the crowning glory of my enjoyable police career and I receive it in the knowledge that it was only possible through the support of my family, friends, colleagues, the volunteer staff and the cadets themselves.”

He was one of a number of Met Police officers to be named in the honours list this weekend.

Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said: “I congratulate these extraordinary members of the Met who have dedicated their working life to policing and to protecting and serving London. They have achieved some amazing accomplishments.

“It is to their credit that they are role models to all, for their commitment, hard work and innovation.

“I am very proud of them all, as they should be of themselves. To be honoured in this way is so very special and richly deserved.”

Minister for Policing and the Fire Service Nick Hurd, said: “I am very pleased to see frontline and senior officers from across the Metropolitan Police included in the New Year Honours List. They have all served our capital city with distinction and the vital role they have played, protecting our communities, is to be commended.

“I am also encouraged that the majority of Queen’s Police Medals continue to be awarded to rank and file officers, in recognition of their commitment and dedication to duty.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
