Denis Gunn and Sue Brace

CARE of Police Survivors has a new President as Denis Gunn takes over the role from Sue Brace.

Denis said he is “proud” to take on the job but that Sue will be “a hard act to follow”. Sue said it “has been an honour and privilege to have served as the president of Care of Police Survivors.”

Sue remains a Trustee.

Denis said: “I am looking forward to representing COPS and continuing to raise awareness of the many benefits COPS provides both now and in the future to survivors.

“I am particularly keen to ensure our younger members are properly supported and involved – they are the future of COPS.”

He added: “I am very proud to take over the Presidency from Sue and grateful to her for everything she has achieved. She will be a hard act to follow.”

Sue said: “It’s been the hardest but most rewarding job I have ever undertaken. It’s been 24 hours 7 days a week and very emotional at times. There has been lots of laughter, plenty of ups and downs.

“I have also met the most amazing families who I’m immensely proud to call my friends. Thank you to you all for making Care of Police Survivors what it is today.”

Sue received an MBE for her work with survivors in 2012. She has been President since 2010.

Jan Berry, COPS chairman, said: “We would all like to thank Sue Brace – her contribution in time, energy and caring has been immense. Fortunately her knowledge and experience will not be lost to the Board of Trustees as she is remaining on the Board as Immediate Past President.”
