PSNI to award medal to staff with three years' service

The PSNI is planning to award a medal to all staff who have served three or more years, the BBC has learned.

It is to mark the first 10 years of the service.

It will also be presented to the next of kin of those who have died in the course of duty. For the first time, support staff will also be eligible for such an honour.
