How much?

Reports in the press claim that the Met is ‘planning to spend £440,000 on mounting certificates and picture frames’ to maintain morale by recognising officers’ ‘bravery in the line of duty, innovative instigations, long service, and for those retiring’. Very worthy I’m sure, but in my day a poster from Athena of a tennis player scratching her bum only cost 50p. Mind you her outfit later sold for £15,000.

  1. When I retired from the Met I was presented with a framed certificate and a model of the door of 10 Downing Street. (I was working for the department responsible for protecting the street, among other things). Both were paid for from a collection organiised by my colleagues, not from the force budget.
    The London Ambulance Service gave me a fairly impressive medal after 21 years service, but that sits in a desk drawer. I could hardly walk around wearing it in Beetley. 🙂
    Cheers, Pete.
