Condolences for former Commissioner Bean

A condolence book will be opened at the Hamilton Police Station tomorrow for tributes to be paid to the late former police commissioner Frederick “Penny” Bean.

Mr Bean's passing marks “a monumental loss for the Bermuda Police Service and the local community”, a police spokesman said.

The service is preparing other salutes to the first Bermudian commissioner in celebration of his service and legacy.

The book will be open from 9am to 4pm for the public as well as BPS staff to sign.

All police flags will fly at half mast from 8am tomorrow until 8pm on Monday.

Mr Bean's funeral will be held at the Anglican Cathedral on Church Street on Monday at 2pm.
