MBE for services to policing and the community: Chief Superintendent Nigel Grimshaw
Chief Superintendent Nigel Grimshaw is one of five people from the PSNI honoured in the New Year's Honours list.
The senior police officer with 31 years' service has been awarded the Member of the British Empire (MBE) for services to policing and the community in Northern Ireland.
Police staff member Deborah Wolfe also gets the BEM for services to policing and the Queen's Police Medals (QPM) were awarded to Chief Superintendent Raymond Murray, temporary detective Chief Inspector Alan Dickson and Inspector Phil Shepherd.
Mr Grimshaw was one of the most experienced public order commanders in the Police Service of Northern Ireland and has been at the centre of building relationships between the police and marginalised communities, as well as developing sustainable partnerships.
He was the author of the 'Working in Partnership' policy, which was an integral part of the delivery of the Patten Commission for Policing with the Community.
In 2012, Mr Grimshaw was elected president of the Superintendents Association for Northern Ireland.
He will retire from the PSNI on January 1 to take up a post with Belfast City Council.
