MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR
Welcome to the official website of the Bermuda Ex-Police Officer's Association, now known as "Bermie Ex-Po". Our intention is to provide former and retired members of the Bermuda Police Service with a means of keeping in touch with each other, to record our collective history, and to encourage you to sit down and write about your own personal experiences so they can be recorded for posterity
Our Committee (CLICK HERE for details) is determined to ensure that "Bermie Ex-Po" is inclusive for all those who have served in the BPS, and through our website we try to bring us all closer together, whether you are still living here in Bermuda or you are many thousands of miles away.
I feel sure that as you leaf through its pages, our website will hold many fond memories for you, and will hopefully encourage you to let us hear from you. Please feel free to let us have your comments and suggestions via our website email address at email@example.com
CLICK HERE for our latest article featuring retired Chief Inspector Hilton Wingood who served from 1955 – 1986 in a wide variety of posts during his career including Central (Uniform), Assistant Provost Marshall, Operations (Traffic), OIC Cycle Squad, Mobile Reserve, Training School, Prosecutions, Western Division, Watch Inspector in Central Division, and OIC Central Division, OIC Operations, and OIC Western Division at the time of his retirement.
We recently looked back at two of our earliest "Then and Now" articles about two officers who gave outstanding service to the Bermuda Police. CLICK HERE for our article on Sgt. Lynn Hall who earned the title "Mr. Outward Bound" and was an exceptionally popular police officer. CLICK HERE for our article on D/Insp Milton Murray Marsh who was one of our very first police officers from the West Indies and was an outstanding detective who we interviewed when he was 100 years old
Hall of Fame - This section is intended to honour the memories of former colleagues who are no longer with us. They are usually kindly submitted by family and friends, and we urge the families of our former colleagues to assist us in including their loved ones in our Hall of Fame.
CLICK HERE for our article on the Late David “Dave” “Cookie” Cook who served in the BPS from 1966-1991,
CLICK HERE for our article on the Late James “JCP” “Jim” Hanlon who served in the BPS from 1952-1985.
Who, Where and When - This column features photographs submitted to us by former colleagues in which we challenge you to tell us who is in the photograph, when was it taken, and where was it taken? We usually give you a couple of weeks to figure out the answers and we then publish the correct results - if known - based on our collective memories. Please either email your answers to us or type in your comments in the "Comments" section below the enlarged photo. Editors note - We are still having problems with our Comments at the bottom of each page, so if you would like to answer the above queries please forward your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
CLICK HERE to view our latest "Memory Tester" which is clearly of a football team. We want to know the names of all those in the team along with their manager. We can also tell you where, but can you tell us when it was taken?

Latest News and Press Releases - You will see the headings for both of these columns here on our home page, Latest News usually contains local news, often related to the BPS, that we believe will be of interest. Press Releases have usually been mainly about Police-related matters but as of now I will try to keep you up-to-date on the cornonavirus crisis locally by referring you to articles in our local media wherever possible.
On behalf of the Bermie Ex-Po Committee we wish all the very best to you and your families, and we trust that our website will provide you with an opportunity to think of good times as you stroll down memory lane.
You do not need to be a paid up member of Bermie Ex-Po to be able to enjoy our website, but we would encourage all former members of the Bermuda Police normally resident in Bermuda to join our organization. The annual cost of membership is $40, and for persons over 70 it is $20. Widows and widowers of former officers are honorary members, as are retired civilian staff. We are most grateful to the Police Association for a generous donation that has made the creation of this website possible, but we normally rely on membership fees to keep it active and up-to-date.
