Memorial Service: Constable Ian Dibell
The President of the Police Superintendents' Association Chief Superintendent Derek Barnett speaking at the Memorial Service for Constable Ian Dibell held at St James Church in Clacton today at 3pm said:
"Today the police family has come together to honour and celebrate the life of Constable Ian Dibell. A dedicated, professional and courageous police officer who in doing the job he loved so much, protecting the public, bravely and selflessly gave his life.
The manner of Ian's tragic death epitomises the nature of the daily work of police officers up and down the country, who day in and day out, quietly and diligently, often unseen, place themselves in danger to fight crime and to serve their communities. The unique and honourable role that every police officer who holds the Office of Constable, of which Ian was so proud, carries a commitment to intervene and act whether on or off duty, where others may quite properly walk away.
We owe a great debt to Ian and we will never forget his sacrifice".
