MBE - Harry Kissock
Harry has worked in policing for 33 years, playing a crucial role in ensuring that the Police Service’s ICT infrastructure can deliver effective, efficient and sustainable solutions to support policing.
Congratulating the recipients Chief Constable Jon Boutcher said: “Policing is an incredibly difficult job and I am delighted that a number of our officers and a member of police staff have been named in the New Year’s Honours List. Each has made an outstanding contribution to policing through their dedicated service. I was enormously impressed by what each has done in policing, it was humbling to hear their stories. It is a testament to their professionalism and to the support given to them by their families that the public service they have given over so many years has been recognised in this immense way. It was a privilege to inform each of them and to pass on my congratulations on their incredible achievement. ”
