The event was hosted by chief constable Phil Gormley and the medals and certificates were presented by Group Captain Rochelle, Station Commander RAF Marham.
To qualify for the Long Service and Good Conduct Medal, Police officers must have served 20 years, while special constabulary officers are honoured for 9 years 'willing and competent' voluntary service.
