Tobi Mulder has received the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to law enforcement and diversity, while a second officer (whose full name has not been published) received the Member of the Order of British Empire (MBE) for services to law enforcement and protecting the public.
Until recently, Mulder headed a threat team within the Border Policing Command. He led a team which prevented the border from 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 based in The Hague, Mulder developed closer ties between police investigations in the Netherlands and the UK in a determined bid to fight international crime.
Mulder is chair for the sexual orientation network and resource diversity group network that’s helping to change attitudes and support LGBT officers.
Lynne Owens, director general of the National Crime Agency, has congratulated both officers on their achievement. “I’m delighted to see two of our officers receive national and deserved recognition. The public have been protected as a result of their selfless service. It’s with great pride in them and the National Crime Agency that I offer our congratulations.”
