Police officers from the Orana Mid-Western District have been recognised for putting themselves at risk on a daily basis and making a difference to the communities they serve.
Western Region Assistant Commissioner Geoff McKechnie acknowledged the professionalism and dedication of six officers within the Western Region Traffic and Highway Patrol Command at a ceremony in Dubbo on Thursday.
"The awards are lasting symbols of the service and sacrifice our members make to keep communities safe," he said.
"They represent our country and state, saying thank you for what you have done.
"It's not easy to be a police officer, so to serve for 10, 15 or 20 years is a significant achievement and I am incredibly proud of these officers who continue to prevent, disrupt and respond to crime in our region.
"The awards also recognise the families of our officers, the importance of those who love and support our people cannot be overstated."
Senior Sergeant Jason Bush and Sergeant Kelly Wixx both received their second clasp to the NSW Police medal. Senior Constable Stephen Wynne was presented with a National medal, National Police Service medal and his first clasp to the NSW Police medal.
From the Western region Sergeant Kenneth Brisbane received his first clasp to the National medal, and Sergeant Collin Jones received the Northern Region Unit citation for the siege at Edenville on February 21 2013.
