Policing can often be a thankless grind for the thousands of serving Queensland officers with only their work colleagues knowing and understanding what the daily challenges can bring.

The work and efforts of a group of Gladstone officers and CIB detectives have been recognised by their peers at a small ceremony held today by senior officer Inspector Darren Somerville, with medals and certificates presented by Rockhampton based Superintendent Ron Van Saane.
