On Thursday 14 March, the RCIPS celebrated the service and dedication of seven officers who have retired from the service former Inspector Winsome Prendergast, former Inspector Livingston Bailey, former Sergeant Clesford Lumsden, PC Mary Reese, PC Leonora Yates, AC Lawrence Woods and AC Elaine Thomas. The longest serving member of the group of retirees was former Police Sergeant Clesford Lumsden who was a police officer for 37-years of service until his retirement.
Awards and gifts were presented to each officer from the group of retirees and staff in attendance shared kind words of encouragement and well wishes to all the retirees. A Police Association Award and a Police Welfare Award was presented to former Inspector Prendergast for the service that she provided to both groups throughout her career.
The evening closed off with dinner and music and a slide show of pictures of the retirees over the year.
The RCIPS would like to say thank you to all the retirees for the services you provided to us over the years.
