Austin HETHERINGTON BEM (British Empire Medal)

We are extremely pleased announce that James Austin HETHERINGTON, known as Austin has been awarded a Medallists of the Order of the British Empire (BEM) in HM King’s first Birthday Honors List.

Austin was the equivalent of IODPA in Northern Ireland working tirelessly to seek justice for police officers that had been injured on duty. He spent many years and expended a great deal of his time and energy supporting officers and pensioners before finally retiring approximately 6 months ago

Members of IODPA had the great pleasure of travelling to Northern Ireland in 2017 where Austin and some of his members graciously looked after us.

We cannot think of a more deserving person for this great honor, well done Austin!

    This is excellent news and well done Austin.

    It’s nice to see at a time when the ‘Official’ side seems hell bent on saving money from the ‘easy target’ police injured and pensioned, that someone who stands up for justice and fair play is recognised.
