The Bermuda Police Service announced the retirement of two fellow colleagues today, after nearly 75 years combined service.

Police Constables Michael Redfern and Timothy Evelyn were both recognised recently by the Commissioner, Darrin Simons, for their hard work, dedication to duty, leadership and mentoring as well as their commitment and dedication to service.

Michael “Mick” Redfern will be well remembered for his time as a senior investigative officer who worked on and helped solve a number of high profile cases along with helping to train up so many young officers helping them to hone their skills as detectives.

Timothy “Timmy” Evelyn is also well known among his colleagues for his high standards of policing and his efforts to ensure they too meet and do not deviate from those standards.

Having made his mark in several areas of policing but most notably as a member of the Roads Policing Unit, Mr Evelyn’s willingness to pass on the knowledge and experience gained after more than thirty years with the BPS has helped ensure the newer members of the BPS are well prepared to meet the mandate of making Bermuda safer.
