Badges and Awards

We are very pleased to announce that the Awards and Badges have now returned to the forum.

Some of you will see that you already have some awards or achievements in your forum posts.  Those who already have them will have got them as a result of the transfer over from the old site all that time ago, however, a lot of you won't have them.

If you do have them or when you do get them they will display either on the left under your name or at the bottom of each post.  Awards are on the left and achievements will be along the bottom.  You can also see all the award and achievements you or anyone else has by looking at their profile and you can see what awards are available and who has them by clicking here:

http://police.community/awards/

So how do you get them I hear you ask.  It's easy.  For the most part you just ask for it.  Some of them we can verify such as serving officer status, the badges such as Long Service or Jubilee medals we will award on request based on trust, if you say you got them then we will award then.  If you shouldn't have them then you really do need to be asking yourself just how sad is it that you want to display a badge on a forum signifying an award?  Add on to that the fact that eventually you'll likely be sussed as not really deserving of it and then that's just embarrassing when you are outed.

In the very near future there will be many more added and these will be for things like post counts and Likes etc.  These will be automated and will be with us soon.

If you want a badge then they can be awarded by any of the full mods so all you need to do is send them a message or speak to them in the chat room (when available) and they will do the rest for you.

Let us know what you think

Can I ask all of you who are serving regulars, specials, PCSOs and staff to PM me please if you would like the relevant award added to your profile (We award these on trust)

We also have a Police Family Retired badge so let me know if you want one of those if you are no longer serving.

As of last month, I have retired from the Auxiliary Police with the rank of Deputy Inspector, after just short of thirty years. Our "Deputy Inspector" is one rank highter than "Captain", and just below "Inspector" (our highest rank). Am I entitled to an award?

@Goldfgy

Maybe a long service good conduct award, if you've been presented with one of those at work?

Probably a retired police family award too?

There is a list here of all the awards

My department (in New York State, U.S.A.) doesn't award long service good conduct awards. When I officially retired I did receive a number of placques, certifiicates,  and such from the Mayor, City Council, County Legislators, and State legislators. The department gave me an official "retired" ID card and presented me with my badge.

Apparently, I don't fit the requirements for any of the awards.

@Goldfgy leave it with me, I'll ask my fellow moderators and administrators, to see where the land lies with regards to overseas awards.
