Guest Darrell, July 18, 2006 in Great Britain: Orders, Gallantry, Campaign Medals
The suspension - is that a stylised fleur de lys? If not, it's a missed opportunity for additional symbolism.....
8. Canadian Police Exemplary Service Medal and Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Long Service Medal - Attributed to Robert M. Fralick.
Managed to snag this set off ebay. An elderly gentleman (formerly high ranking Police Officer in Ontario) who is 77 and no family members wanted his medals so he sold them. Sad that no family members want them.
He started his career in the Police Force in 1958. Retired in 1992.
The first medal is the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Long Service Medal which is an obsolete unoficial medal created until the Exemplary Police Medal was created in 1982.
Both cased and have that great look.

The old Gentleman was kind enough to write a little blurb on a piece of paper:
This letter is to confirm that the accompanying medals were awarded to me during my career with the Police Services.
I started with the City of Welland Police Force on Dec. 15, 1958.
On January 1st, 1971, 12 Municipal Forces were amalgamated into the 1st Regional Force in Ontario ? The Niagara Regional Police Service.
It was during this time that I went up through the ranks and when I retired in early 1992, I held the rank of Acting Superintendent in # 2 Division Niagara Falls.

Finally from the Canadian Honors Website:
