Detective Chief Superintendent awarded

STRANRAER MAN Detective Chief Superintendent Tom McCulloch of Dumfries and Galloway Police on Thursday was awarded The Queen's Police Medal by The Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Awarded to recognise a career of distinguished police service, the QPM also reflects Mr McCulloch's role as a senior investigating officer for the Lockerbie Inquiry, his responsibility for the arrest and charge of the accused and his over-all management of the policing of the site at Kamp Van Zeist in The Netherlands.

After serving as a police cadet for two years, Tom McCulloch joined the Dumfries and Galloway Force as a constable in 1971.

He was appointed to what was then CID in 1971 and later served in a number of operational and specialist posts.

Detective Chief Superintendent McCulloch was appointed senior investigating officer for the Lockerbie Inquiry in 1998, in which he had been involved since 1988.
