In January 2020, the PSNI service medal was established, with it being awarded in December 2021.
I am aware that serving officers then under certain forms of investigation were excluded from award of the medal.
Please provide details:
How many officers were excluded from the award of the medal?
What were the grounds for exclusion?
Where is this exclusion legislated? Is it a governmental condition of award or is it PSNI policy only?
If PSNI policy, please provide details of the service policy or instruction in which it is stipulated that the award of the service medal should be excluded for certain classes of serving officer.
