Police Commissioner praises Royal Honours for nine staff

Police Commissioner Peter Marshall has congratulated the nine New Zealand police officers, two of them recently retired, who receive Royal Honours announced in the New Year’s list for 2013 today.

“It’s a special day for the recipients, their families and friends. A Royal Honour is wonderful recognition for the contribution these people have made, to the Police and the wider public in a diverse range of fields.”

The Police recipients are:
• Detective Inspector (Retired) Chris Kelley, Dunedin, who retired from New Zealand Police last year and who was from 2008 to 2011 Commissioner of the Tonga Police. Chris becomes an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM);
• Inspector Mark Harrison (Palmerston North Rural Area Commander), Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM)
• Inspector Wendy Robilliard (Far North Area Commander), Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM)
• Inspector Willie Taylor (Northern Communications Centre shift commander), Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM)
• Senior Sergeant Roy Appley (New Brighton Police, Christchurch), Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM)
• Superintendent (Retired) Paula Rose, former National Road Policing Manager, who retired this year. Paula becomes a Companion of the Queen’s Service Order (QSO);
• Senior Constable John O’Donovan (Nelson), Queen’s Service Medal (QSM);
• Senior Constable Bruce Milne (Matamata), Queen’s Service Medal (QSM);
• Senior Constable John Tangaere, (Hastings) Queen’s Service Medal (QSM).

Commissioner Marshall praised the people focused approach all of the officers
demonstrated. “They’ve created strong networks in local, national or internationals roles; and prepared to get and do their very best for people from all walks of life.

“This has included developing and implementing victims focused welfare support and police response in mass casualty incidents including Pike River, the Canterbury earthquakes and Carterton ballooning tragedies; achieving major change in driving down the road toll; or providing leadership and mentoring in local and international community roles.

“New Zealand Police is proud of their achievements.”
