The British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) would like to congratulate British Transport Police’s Chief Constable Lucy D’Orsi and Chief Superintendent Dennis Murray, Lead for Legitimacy, Trust and Community Policing, who have both been awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in Her Majesty The Queen’s 2021 Birthday Honours.
Chief Constable D’Orsi received the Queen’s Police Medal for Distinguished Services to the Policing of Specialist Operations and Chief Superintendent Murray received his award for improving diversity within policing and building trust and strong relationships with local communities.
BTPA Chair Ron Barclay-Smith says: “On behalf of my Authority colleagues I wish to congratulate both Lucy and Dennis on their well-deserved honours. We are delighted that Her Majesty has seen fit to recognise their efforts. Over her 29-year career Lucy has forged new paths, contributed greatly to the operational policing of many high-profile events and has made a considerable personal and professional contribution to the nature and development of policing in the United Kingdom. Dennis similarly has played an integral role in the development of modern community relations, particularly in terms of bringing together policing and the many different communities which enrich our country today.”
