Alberta Police 20 Year Long Service Medal
This medal replaces the Alberta Law Enforcement 25 year Long Service Medal.
The purpose of the medal is to recognize any person whose service equals or exceeds a period of 20 years in a police service in Alberta.
The medal is silver finished and displays the Alberta Rose with the wording Twenty Years Long Service on the front. The Alberta Coat of Arms is displayed on the reverse. The ribbon attached to the medal is blue with three stripes - two cream and one green.
The period served in a police service must have been within Alberta for 20 years or longer and does not include any period of leave to serve with the Armed Forces or another agency or organization, or any period of service outside of Alberta. Service in Lloydminster is only eligible if served after April 1, 2009 when the command of the RCMP detachment was transferred “F” Division to “K” Division in Alberta.
Up to five years of Military police service in Alberta can be counted toward the Alberta Police Officer Long Service Recognition Medal. If the periods of service are not continuous, or are with more than one police service, each period of service is calculated to the nearest month. And the total service must exceed 240 months.
Only under special circumstances, at the discretion of the Minister, can the medal be awarded to an individual who does not meet all eligibility criteria.
This full size medal comes loose and with 8 inches of quality ribbon (32mm wide).
