Earthquake police staff to get awards
Wed, 10 Oct 2012 5:26a.m.
A hundred Canterbury police officers who helped people deal with with the devastation of the February 2011 earthquake will receive special citations from their boss on Wednesday.
Police Commissioner Peter Marshall is presenting the first 100 of the 2011 Canterbury Earthquake Citation awards at a ceremony in Christchurch.
They are the first of about 3600 New Zealand police staff - more than 1000 of whom are from Canterbury - who will receive the red and black ribbon in a silver metallic frame.
There will also be external recipients, including Australian police, other emergency services staff and specialists who helped with the victim identification process.
Guests at Wednesday's ceremony include Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker and Defence Force and emergency services representatives.
