Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

To mark Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year on the throne, a Platinum Jubilee Medal is being awarded to people who work in public service, including representatives of the Armed Forces, the Emergency Services and the Prison Service.  

All staff members in operational roles with over 5 years’ service are eligible to receive a medal. However, SPS wanted to recognise the outstanding contribution and service of all our staff. We are therefore awarding Platinum Jubilee Commemorative Coins to all those who would not be eligible for a medal. 

 The operation of the SPS is a tremendous team effort. Our staff work exceptionally hard, which can often go unseen by the general public, and we value all that they do.

Staff at HMP Perth received their medals last week and managed to capture a photograph to mark the occasion.
