Lastly a National Service Medal was presented to Mel Hayward. The National Medal recognises long and diligent service by members that risk their lives or safety to protect or assist the community in enforcement of the law or in times of emergency or natural disaster. This award is available for any member belonging to a recognised government or voluntary organisation.
Although members don’t join for the recognition, it is important to acknowledge the time, effort and commitment a long standing member dedicates to the cause. Congratulations to everyone.
