Sergeant (later Inspector) Brian Flook
We have received the sad news that our good friend and former colleague, retired Inspector Brian Flook passed away on Wednesday 31st March 2021. Brian was born in Fulham in England and served in the Royal Military Police for 3 years in Egypt, Cyprus and elsewhere, then in the Metropolitan Police for 2 years before joining the Bermuda Police in December 1959.
Brian started his Bermuda police career in Eastern Division, St. George’s, and spent many years in the east as a Constable, in CID, and later as a Sergeant. He served as an aide in Prosecutions in 1977 and went on to become the Officer in Charge of Prosecutions as Inspector for several years before moving to Headquarters “D” Department.
With his past experience in the Military Police, Brian was an excellent marksman who was a regular member of the Police Firearms Team. He also became a specialist in explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) having attended numerous EOD courses in the U.K. and the U.S.A.
Brian retired from the BPS in October 1991 after 32 years service. Throughout his career Brian proved to be a highly efficient and popular police officer.
After retiring from the Police Service Brian worked at the Bermuda Airport as Aviation Security Consultant. He always remained a St. George’s man at heart and settled in St. David's with his wife Jenny and their two boys, Peter and Chris.
We offer our sincere condolences to Jenny, Peter and Chris and the family.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
