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.
Our latest article (CLICK HERE to view it) features our good friend and former colleague Robert “Bob” “RCS” Smith who served in the Bermuda Police from 1956 – 1965, posted at first to Eastern Division, then to Central (Hamilton) and as Pembroke Parish Constable, before being transferred to Operations in 1960, Bob was a member of the original Police Motor Cycle Display Team, and was a very popular and well liked member of the Service. Bob left the Police in 1965 and spent several years in the U.S. where he was a Private Investigator. He returned to Bermuda in 1972 and worked in security related fields including Head of Security at the Southampton Princess. Now fully retired he is living in Las Vegas, Bob, still regularly returns to his homeland and maintains contact with many of his old friends from the BPS.

Jim was a popular member of the Police Force and served for many years in St. George’s before moving to Central Division where he also served in CID. An excellent shot, Jim was also well known for putting on shows with his amazing dog “Sparsa” who delighted audiences with high-level obedience and tricks.

We recently discovered this photo of a large group gathering at Prospect, and although I happen to be in it, I have no recollection of when or why it was taken. Can anyone assist first of all in identifying everyone in it, and also in figuring out exactly why it was taken - and when?
This is definitely NOT Dave Garland! It's not often we publish two photos at a time in this column but we are making an exception with this photo of a police officer assisting a young lady in St. George's back in 1963. We know when and where the photo was taken, but we are trying to ascertain the identity of the police officer. CLICK HERE to view the article.

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.
