Hertfordshire’s Chief Constable has been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in the New Year’s Honours List.

The recognition is awarded to officers who have forged a distinguished career in terms of exceptional contribution and professional conduct.

Chief Constable Charlie Hall said: “I am really delighted. The award reflects the hard work of all the good people I have worked alongside over the years, developing policing locally and nationally.”

Mr Hall has been the Chief Constable for Hertfordshire Constabulary since 2016, previously having served as Deputy Chief Constable for Norfolk Constabulary where he started his policing career.

Minister for Policing and the Fire Service Nick Hurd said: “Chief Constable Charles Hall has been instrumental in developing policing’s response to the changing nature of crime.

“He serves Hertfordshire with distinction and I am delighted that his contribution has been recognised with the award of a Queen’s Police Medal.”

David Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, said: “This is a fitting reward for an excellent Chief Constable who has done so much for policing in Hertfordshire and nationally.”
