Congratulations to ACO Hopkins but there's a few in wilts and must be more in other forces that deserve recognition.

We did have a special in Wilts get an MBE in 2012 : http://www.marlboroughnewsonline.co.uk/news/all-the-news/1351-an-mbe-for-marlborough-s-carry-on-regardless-special-constable-mike-tupman . I think specials should get an award like this only for something truely exception, not just as a compliment to the Long service Medal.


But I did feel that in general the numbers of specials this year was pretty low in getting an award yes (nationwide, not just Wilts).
