The work of two National Crime Agency (NCA) officers has been recognised in this years’ Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Tobi Mulder has received the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to law enforcement and diversity, and a second officer Mark, received the Member of the Order of British Empire (MBE) for services to law enforcement and protecting the public.
Until recently Tobi Mulder headed a threat team within the Border Policing Command. He led a team which prevented the border being exploited by those who want to traffic people, import illegal firearms, move cash gained through criminal activity and import illicit drugs.
Previously, as an NCA International Liaison Officer in The Hague, Tobi developed closer ties between police investigations in the Netherlands and the UK to fight international crime.
Tobi is chair for the sexual orientation network and resource diversity group network that’s helping to change attitudes and support LGBT officers.
Director General of the National Crime Agency, Lynne Owens congratulated both officers on their achievement:
“I am delighted to see two of our officers receive this national and well deserved recognition. The public have been protected as a result of their selfless service and it is with great pride in them and the agency that I offer our congratulations.”
