Retirement of Commissioner Michael A. DeSilva

Tue, 2018-01-09

Commissioner of Police Michael A. DeSilva – It was not an easy decision to retire and leave a career of over 32 years in the making. I am passionate about policing and I have dedicated my entire adult life to public service. I am grateful to all of my colleagues, past and present, for their support and commitment during my tenure. It has been an honour and a privilege to lead so many dedicated and skilled police officers, support staff, reserves, and cadets.

I am proud of the significant impact we have made in helping to reduce violence, but there is more to be done. After 8 years as Commissioner it is the right time to let someone else lead the BPS from its senior post, and continue the mission of “Making Bermuda Safer.”
