Chief Constable Pam Kelly has been recognised with a Queen’s Police Medal as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours for 2022.

Chief Constable Kelly joined Gwent Police in 2017 having started her career with Dyfed-Powys Police in 1994.

She was appointed the Chief Constable of Gwent Police by Police and Crime Commissioner Jeff Cuthbert in August 2019.

Jeff Cuthbert said: “Since I appointed Chief Constable Kelly in 2019 her leadership has been tested in ways we could never have anticipated.

“Responding to the pandemic, severe weather events and concerns within our communities in response to global issues, has required great leadership. I am continually impressed with the way Chief Constable Kelly has responded to the demands of the last few years and her commitment to ensuring the best possible service for the people of Gwent has been evident throughout.

“She is driving a culture change within Gwent Police and is ably served by a strong chief officer team. Together they are focussing on protecting and reassuring our communities.

“I am delighted that Chief Constable Kelly’s hard work and dedication has been honoured with a Queen’s Policing Medal and would like to thank her personally for all she has done for the people of Gwent.”
