REPORT ON HURRICANE TEDDY
No sooner had Cat 2 Hurricane Paulette passed directly over Bermuda and moved away from our shores, than we now have a second hurricane "Teddy" threatening the Island. For the past few days Teddy has been classed as a major Cat 4 hurricane with winds in excess of 130 mph and was said to be heading straight for Bermuda, but by latest reports Teddy will likely be a Cat 2 storm by the time it reaches are area, and it should pass just over 100 miles to our east, giving us winds slightly below hurricane force. At this point we are all breathing a slight sigh of relief but hurricanes can be fickle!
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.

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. Our latest photo appears to be a group of sporty bobbies on tour, and we are asking if you can name them, and also provide details of where they were, and when the photo was taken. Our most recent Maritime photo (CLICK HERE to view it) resulted in a huge amount of information about how the BPS came into possession of a yacht involved with a major smuggling case, and how a crew of Bermuda police officers said her safely to New York.
Latest News and Press Releases - You will see both of 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.
