The Toowoomba District Awards Presentation acknowledged officers for diligent service, as well as the length of time with the Queensland Police Service.
Senior sergeant John Harland was presented with the second clasp on his National Medal, for 35 years service.
Snr Sgt Harland, who is the regional forensic services coordinator,
said forensics was a field that had moved ahead leaps and bounds in his time as an officer.
“I really think with forensic work it’s about when you get a result at the end of the day.
“You see the other side, the victim’s side and the offender’s side.
“We’re unbiased; we can prove innocence as well as guilt.”
