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
CLICK HERE for our latest article featuring our good friend and colleague, retired Detective Inspector Dudley Swan who served in the Bermuda Police for 30 years from 1951 – 1981. Born and raised in St. George’s Dudley spent many years in Eastern Division, on the beat, then in CID and as OIC Eastern CID, but also served in Murder Squad and in Central uniform. Always a popular and well liked officer, Dudley, now 93, has always been active but has been in failing health in recent months.

CLICK HERE for our latest article about the Late Inspector Stuart Innes who served in the Bermuda Police from 1973 - 1999. Stuart arrived in Bermuda in May 1973 as one of 20 new recruits with previous police experience, and he served on the beat in Hamilton, in Traffic where he was a member of MCPS, and in "A' Department where he found his niche as a highly efficient and well liked member of the "A" Team. We were deeply saddened to hear of his passing in November 2022 as reported in our Latest News. CLICK HERE to view the Latest News article.
CLICK HERE for our article about the Late Alfred James “Jim” Amos who served in the Bermuda Police from 1931-1958.
Our latest article (CLICK HERE to review it) is about a most unusual Police appeal for the public to slow down on our roads that reads, “Hi All, please leave the speed to Flora. More than twenty tickets issued for speeding so far this weekend. Please slow down.” If you don’t know who Flora is then you don’t know Bermuda’s greatest ever athlete who is the current Olympic Triathlon Champion and 3 times winner of the World Triathlon Championship who competed here in Bermuda last weekend and showed us why we could “leave the speed” to Flora!
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
First names please! This is a change from our usual format of providing a photo and asking for your help in figuring out the "Who, Where and When"! We are in the process of adding all of the Police Training School photos of courses held there, and have just posted photos from Course #31 in 1982 - Course #40 in 1988. We have captions for each photo but they only provide surnames so we are asking if you can view them and assist us in adding first names and nicknames!

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.
