Among the police officers receiving a commendation was Pc Dave Bunn who was commended for trying to help a terminally ill young boy fulfil his dying wish.
Dean Lambert, 11, suffered from an extremely rare genetic disorder. Pc Bunn visited Dean in hospital to present him with a custom-made uniform before he died in in April.
Speaking at the time, Pc Bunn said: "The reason I did this is the same reason any other police officer would have done it, 'to make a difference'. It was a privilege for me to be given the opportunity to help a family at their time of need."
BCU commander Det Ch Supt Stephen Clayman handed out the awards to 18 officers at the ceremony.
