Head of IT services for two forces receives British Empire Medal

Former officer Brian Jaggs set up Essex and Kent support department after re-joining force as staff

The Head of IT Infrastructure for Essex and Kent has been presented with his British Empire Medal after his work during the pandemic helped set up mobile working technology for 2,500 officers and staff who needed to work from home.

Brian Jaggs was awarded a BEM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List and has now been presented with it by Essex Lord-Lieutenant Jennifer Tolhurst.

Brian joined Essex Police 53 years ago as a police cadet, then served 30 years as a police officer, retiring as a chief inspector before re-joining as a member of police staff. He was tasked with establishing the force’s IT Services department 20 years ago and, in 2010, oversaw the establishment of the joint Essex Police and Kent Police IT Services department.

Two years ago, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic he created a team who worked seven days a week to build and deliver more than 2,500 additional laptops for officers and staff who needed to work from home.

This enabled record low absence rates, during an extremely challenging time for policing the force said.
