Firzana Ahmed QPM – Retired Police Officer

My parents came to Britain in 1966 and settled in Leeds where I grew up. Born the middle one of seven children, I’ve always been considered the peacemaker in the family. I enjoyed school but didn’t excel in my educational studies. 

At 22 I joined the police, and served as a PC for 30 years in the community. 

Beat officer, acquisitive crime detection, youth engagement, schools officer, women’s engagement.

In 2019 I was recognised in the Queen’s birthday honours with the Queens Police Medal.  

Since retirement, at 52, I have been actively engaging in community initiatives with a focus on health and wellbeing.

Sectors worked in and routes taken:

Beat Officer

Acquisitive Crime

Women’s Engagement

What I would like to get involved in
