Description

The Northern Territory Police Valour Medal is a distinguished award conferred by the Commissioner of Police to honour members who have exhibited extraordinary bravery in highly dangerous situations or who have acted courageously and responsibly when faced with potential or actual life-threatening danger. The award consists of a framed certificate along with an ornamental medal and bar, which are to be worn as unofficial honours.

Eligibility for this esteemed medal includes the following criteria:

  • The award can be conferred posthumously.
  • Former members of the Police Force are also eligible for this award.

In cases where an officer, who has previously received the Valour Medal, demonstrates exceptional bravery in perilous circumstances once again, a silver bar will be added to their existing Valour Medal.

By doing so, the medals are given proper recognition and are displayed in a neat and organized fashion.
