The Ceylon Police Medal was awarded to police officers of the Ceylon Police Force for gallantry or meritorious service. The medal was replaced by the Sri Lanka Police Weeratha Padakkama for gallantry and Sri Lanka Police Vishishta Seva Padakkama for meritorious service when Ceylon became a Republic in 1972.[1]
