ACPO President comments on the death of PC Ian Dibell

09 Jul 2012

Sir Hugh Orde says PC Ian Dibell died while knowingly walking towards danger, as police officers are called upon to do on behalf of the public

ACPO President Sir Hugh Orde said:

"The death of our colleague in Essex is deeply sad news for the police service. PC Ian Dibell died while knowingly walking towards danger, as police officers are called upon to do on behalf of the public they serve. The courage he showed in stepping up to do his duty, without thought for his own safety, sums up what it means to be a police officer.

"The thoughts of everyone in the police family are with his colleagues, family and friends at this difficult time."
