There is already a medal available for long service and good conduct in the police, the Police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal (PLSGCM). King George VI instituted the PLSGCM in June 1951 by Royal Warrant for those who have rendered long and meritorious service as members of the Police Forces of the United Kingdom (UK), the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. The PLSGCM is subject to the terms laid down in its Royal Warrant. The medal recognises police officers who have served twenty years and have demonstrated good conduct. There are no plans to change the PLSGCM or to introduce a new long service medal.
