Fenland police officer cycles off into retirement after 18 years on the streets
Well-known Fenland PCSO Terry McCormack has been presented with his beloved bicycle as a retirement present by the force he served for nearly two decades.
Terry spent the majority of his days in Wisbech on two wheels helping to keep order and on occasion chasing down offenders including once with a broken ankle.
The incident in November 2013 when he chased down an offender before being thrown from his bike and breaking his ankle, was described as one of his "finest moments".
Undeterred, Terry got back on his cycle and gave further chase before catching the man.
Now he has hung up his uniform for the last time.
As a parting gift, Chief Constable Nick Dean presented Terry with the bike he had been attached to for so long.
He spent an impressive amount of time successfully dealing with crime on two wheels said a force spokesperson.
The spokesperson added: "We have loved having Terry as part of our neighbourhood policing team, he has always been a pleasure to have in the office and can only be described as dedicated and loyal to Wisbech and the Fens.
"We wish you every happiness in your retirement, you are officially state 11."
Following news of his retirement members of the public commented on the Policing Fenland Facebook page where Terry was described by one as " one of the finest officers I’ve ever known. Well done Terry."
While another added: "He’s the best Wisbech will have a great loss without him on the streets, all the best."
