A man who spent more than 30 years protecting the country has been honoured with an award.

The Shield Group’s Ken Stewart, Director of Corporate Risk Solutions and a Former Detective Chief Superintendent at the City of London Police, has been awarded the Queens Police Medal (QPM) for Distinguished Service in Her Majesty’s The Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2014.

This distinguished honour is presented to individuals who have had a long and successful career within the police force and aims to recognise their commitment to serving and helping the people of Britain.

Mr Stewart began his career in 1984 when he joined the force as a Police Constable.

He said: “I am extremely honoured to be awarded the Queens Police Medal both as an individual and as a former member of the City Of London Police. Recognition in this way is both humbling and inspiring in equal measure. To have served in the Force for the last thirty years was an honour in itself and it would be remiss of me if I did not express my gratitude to the men and women of the City Of London Police who supported me every step of the way.”

Adrian Leppard, QPM, Commissioner at City of London Police, commented: “I know I speak for all within the City of London Police when I say how proud we all were that (retired) Chief Superintendent Ken Stewart had been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal. It is an honour reserved for the most distinguished police careers and one which Ken truly deserves. He has led some of the most complex international crime and counter terrorism investigations throughout which he has demonstrated leadership, professionalism and dedication. I know that our business partners and the wider community within the City of London will join me in wishing him the warmest congratulations.”
