The Valour Medal is awarded by the Commissioner of Police to a member for displaying exceptional bravery in extremely perilous circumstances or who acts courageously and responsibly in the face of potential or actual danger to their life and will take the form of a framed certificate and an ornamental medal and bar to be worn as an unofficial honour. This award may be made posthumously and may be awarded to a member who has left the Police Force.

In the event that an officer, who has previously been granted the Valour Award, performs an act of exceptional bravery in hazardous circumstances, that officer will be awarded a silver bar to the Valour Award.
