Deputy Premier and Minister for Police Troy Grant has congratulated nine NSW Police officers who have received awards today as part of the Australia Day Honours.
Nine Police Officers have been awarded the Australian Police Medal, for their commitment, dedication and sacrifice to protecting the people of New South Wales.
"These medals recognise the hard work and dedication these men and women show in performing their daily duties as well as the important contribution they make to our communities, whether it be through General Duties or in Specialist Commands," Mr Grant said.
"These individuals demonstrate a level of commitment members of the community have come to expect from our Police Force.
"This honour is a reflection of their talent, professionalism and selflessness putting their lives on the line to ensure the safety of our community each and every day.
"It is wonderful for these officers to receive this special recognition and to be rewarded for their years of service.
"These are the men and women who too often risk their own safety in order to perform one of the hardest jobs around, responding to all manner of situations.
"I want to express my gratitude on behalf of the people of NSW for the vital and at times difficult work each member of the NSW Police Force performs every day."
