Bobby marks century at HQ
The headquarters of Avon and Somerset Police in Portishead welcomed a special guest earlier this week, as former Chief Superintendent Freddie Fisher celebrated his 100th birthday.
Officers gave their former fellow officer a tour of the HQ to mark the occasion.
Mr Fisher retired from the Somerset and Bath Constabulary in 1968, aged 55, having served as a police officer for 33 years.
Born in 1913 in Weston-super-Mare, he joined the Somerset Constabulary as Police Constable No 1 in 1935 and was based in Taunton.
"I had a wonderful time in the police", he told today's officers. "I really enjoyed it. It was like a family, a very happy time in my life. But I was given an opportunity that meant I could buy a house of my own, at the age of 55."
Mr Fisher was received by the Chief Constable Nick Gargan.
