A Special Constable based in Brent has been recognised in the Queen’s New Year Honours List.
Paul Harrison, a qualified response motorcycle officer at Alperton Traffic Unit, has been made a MBE for his contribution to the people of London.
He has been a special constable for 26 years and also volunteers with St John’s Ambulance where he helped set up the paediatric retrieval service and motorcycle response unit.
Mr Harrison, who more recently started serving within the driver training team, said: “I am delighted and proud to receive this honour in recognition of my contribution to the people of London, through my volunteer service with the Metropolitan Police Service and St John Ambulance.
“I regard it as an award for all my volunteer colleagues who give up their time to help others, often carrying out a difficult job under arduous conditions. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with them, and count them as friends. Their dedication, skill and help has been an inspiration to me over the years.
“I would also like to thank my family for their support and understanding during my regular absences from home.”
