Honour for Wootton Bassett PC.
Laurence Brown helped arrange the 46-mile route through the Wiltshire town, where thousands paid their respects to soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
There have been 167 repatriation processions there since 2007.
PC Brown, 51, followed each cortege in a police escort from RAF Lyneham to a hospital in Oxford.
Ministry of Defence Police head Steve Love called him a "credit to the force" and said: "PC Brown's recognition is richly deserved.
"He remains entirely focused on enhancing the quality of life of the people in his community."
