Young P.C. Leroy Jones


We are deeply saddened to report the passing of retired P.C. Leroy Jones who served in the Bermuda Police from September 1964 until his retirement after 25 years, in September 1989.  

Leroy was a popular member of the Force and served in Central Division, "E" Department, CID, Eastern Division, in Prosecutions as a summons server, at Government House, and as Parish Constable in Central Parishes (Pembroke West). Leroy was awarded the Colonial Police Medal for Long Service and Good Conduct.

After retirement from the BPS Leroy worked for some years as a security guard at  HSBC where he was very highly thought of.

We extend our sincere condolences to his wife Garaldine and to their children and family.

So sad to hear of your passing Leroy, we walked the beat on numerous occasions in ,1965/ 67 and I remember shaking your hand on the day you retired and your local knowledge was extraordinary.
My condolences to Leroy's family and friends.

A man who worked by the book.
Quiet but so knowledgeable.

Peter Stubbs chose well when he brought him to 'E' Dept.

Rest in peace old friend.

Nice bloke. There is only myself and Hiram Edwards left of the entire middle row of our basic training course No. 6 in January 1965. RIP all those who have gone :sad:

I remember Leroy: lovely lad, but I think I scared the bejesus out of him one night during the '68 riots when he was my observer when I was Duty Driver, and I drove the duty vehicle (a Morris 1000 Traveller) down Washington LANE from Church Street to Reid Street!
I seem to recall he was also a handy drummer in his off-duty time...
