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.
CLICK HERE for our latest article featuring our good friend and colleague, retired Inspector St. Clair ”Brinky” Tucker who served in the Bermuda Police for 30 years from 1961 – 1992. Brinky attended Training Course #1 and went on to serve on the beat in Hamilton, in Beach Squad, Central Parishes, Cycle Squad, and in Narcotics, as Watch Sergeant in Central, Inspector OIC Prosecutions, Supreme Court Officer, Black Rod, OIC Airport Security, OIC Eastern, and OIC Hamilton at the time of his retirement in 1991. An outstanding sportsman, and much involved in a wide variety of community activities, Brinky has always found time for his wonderful family, and on the day we published this article he is a Grand Marshall for the Bermuda Heritage Day Parade 2022.

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.

CLICK HERE for our latest photo taken during a visit by a Royal Princess. We have no doubt most of our members will recognize this member of the Royal Family but we would also ask you to provide us with where and when it was taken, the names of all the senior police officers and other dignitaries present, the reason or reasons for this Royal Visit, and the connection between this photo and our latest "Then and Now" 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.
Under normal circumstances Bermie Ex-Po currently organizes several events each year at the Police Recreation Club, including a summer BBQ and a reception at the Officers Mess in January, but the Covid pandemic put paid to all of our activities until we finally managed to have a Ppecial Reception on 11th November 2021 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of those f our members still residing here in Bermuda wh0 jined the BPS in 1970 and 1971. CLICK HERE to view the article about this much needed and well received function. We are aware that former colleagues from overseas have organized events in their home countries, and are always delighted to assist you in publicizing these get-togethers, whether it is in Canada, the West Indies, the UK, or Down Under.
You do not need to be a paid up member of Bermie Ex-Po to be able to enjoy our website, but we would encourage all former members of the Bermuda Police normally resident in Bermuda to join our organization. The annual cost of membership is $40, and for persons over 70 it is $20. Widows and widowers of former officers are honorary members, as are retired civilian staff. We are most grateful to the Police Association for a generous donation that has made the creation of this website possible, but we normally rely on membership fees to keep it active and up-to-date.
