An Avon and Somerset policechief has been awarded a prestigious medal on the New Year’s Honours list.

Chief Constable Andy Marsh has received a Queen’s Police Medal (QPM) for his dedication to the force he joined three decades ago.

He said: “I’m very proud to receive this award.

“Policing is a vocation which I consider myself fortunate to have been involved with since I joined Avon and Somerset Constabulary as a police officer 30 years ago.

“It is a moment to reflect upon the outstanding bravery, compassion and professionalism of the men and women I have worked alongside, who have and continue to support me.”

Avon and Somerset’s police and crime commissioner Sue Mountstevens added: “Andy Marsh has an extensive career in policing and his services protecting and serving our local communities goes above and beyond the call of duty.”
