Assistant Chief Constable awarded Queen's Police Medal
Our Assistant Chief Constable Nev Kemp has been awarded a Queen’s Police Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list announced at the weekend.
ACC Kemp, from Brighton, began his career with Sussex Police where he was for 22 years before coming to Surrey in April 2017.
Before travelling north from the coast he was Chief Superintendent responsible for Brighton and Hove. He worked in a number of different areas and departments with roles in both uniform and as a detective. This includes Head of Crime and Counter Terrorism Operations; Head of Crime Investigation with a promotion in 2012 to lead the Protecting Vulnerable People Branch.
As ACC in Surrey he has responsibility for local policing across the Force.
He said: "It was a huge surprise to receive a QPM. In fact I had to sit down when I began reading the letter. Whilst policing is tough at times, it is also a privilege and a job I love because of the incredible people I work with. That makes it all the more humbling to have received this medal."
