  • This picture was taken on my last official day before retiring on the 10th October 1990. I joined the Herts Police as a Cadet in August 1959 and was appointed a Constable on the 20th January 1962.

  • This photo was taken for the retirement of Sgt John Halsey in front of the now Defunct Police Station in Priory Lane and was known as ‘None for the road’ as all officers were holding tea mugs. It was a surprise for John and he had no uniform with him so he borrowed a tunic from Sgt Arthur Brown.

    Since the photo was taken sadly 3 officers have passed away Arthur Brown, James Neil Morrison and Phil Pearce.
