Hertfordshire Police Federation chair Geoff Bardell has marked the 15th anniversary of the death of Sergeant Alan Lovett with a tribute to the “popular and respected” officer.
Alan collapsed and died of heart failure while he was on duty in the early hours at Hatfield Police Station. He was aged 46.
Alan had 25 years’ service, first with the Metropolitan Police for 15 years and then with Hertfordshire Police, where he served on CID and as a custody officer.
Geoff said: “Alan was a popular and respected officer who contributed so much to the police service and the communities he served.
“His untimely death had a huge impact on his colleagues and he continues to be missed by those who knew him and worked with him.
“I personally worked with Alan first back in 1996 as a young acting sergeant. He had recently transferred from the Met on promotion and was very much the senior sergeant on the team already. He was great counsel and an excellent mentor. He also played a number of jokes on me and was great fun. As has been said so many times over the years, a legend.
“The thoughts of everyone at Hertfordshire Police are with his family, friends and colleagues.”
