I am delighted to report that Chief Superintendent Alex Murray of West Midlands Police, founding Chair of the Society of Evidence-Based Policing and MSt (Cantab) graduate of the Cambridge Police Executive Programme, has been appointed to the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for "SERVICES TO EVIDENCE-BASED POLICING." I believe that is the first time that phrase has ever been used in the history of UK Royal Honours. I predict it will not be the last, with many of our alumni well in the running.
