A veteran staff member of the Bermuda Police Service has died.

Donna Roberts died in the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital last Wednesday. She was 61.

Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley said he was deeply saddened by the news.

He added Ms Roberts had served with the BPS for more than 20 years and “is fondly remembered for her pleasant manner, positive attitude and highly active service, both as a traffic warden and station duty officer”.

Mr Corbishley said: “Her untimely death will come as sad and heartbreaking news for many of us — especially those colleagues that worked closely with her.

“On behalf of the BPS, I offer our sincere condolences to Donna’s family and friends who are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.”

Ms Roberts began her career with the BPS as a traffic warden in 1997. She began her role as a station duty officer in 2007.

Ms Roberts also served in Bermuda Reserve Police from 1997 until 2008.
