The Leicestershire PC was off duty when his pedal cycle was involved in a collision. He had been ‘Beat Bobby of the Year’ in 2008...
Leicestershire Constabulary have tonight confirmed that a serving police officer was killed in a road traffic collision last Friday.
PC Guy Swatland (49) was a beat officer for the Stoneygate and Knighton beat at Welford Road local policing unit.
Our deepest sympathies go out to PC Swatlands friends, family and colleagues at this time of sorrow. We hope that justice prevails and should the driver of the van be found guilty of causing his death let us hope that the sentencing is adequate.
