Create a new medal for police injured on duty and discharged from the service.

Petition Details

To debate, agree on and seek The King's approval for the new medal.

Additional Information

It is a national disgrace and scandal that police officers are severely injured on duty in an effort to protect the public, are severely injured and are medically discharged from the service without any medal whatsoever in recognition of their health sacrifice.

No such medal exists other than if there are actions of 'high gallantry' i.e . George Cross etc.

Many police are attacked and injured not having had an opportunity to display 'high gallantry' and that is why very few medals have ever been awarded.
