In 1909 the medal for Faithful Service of Constables was instituted. It was issued for 25 years of service. The corps of constables was in 1941 decomissioned by the occupying German forces. The ribbon of this medal is very special since it has horizontal and vertical stripes. The ribbon is even more rare than the medal itself.
