Death of a retired Police Officer and Durham's police and crime commissioner Ron Hogg

It is with regret that we have to inform you of the death of a retired Police Officer and Durham's police and crime commissioner Ron Hogg, aged 68yrs
Mr Hogg passed away peacefully on Tuesday 17th December after a short battle with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Steve White, Mr Hogg's chief executive, said in a statement he had never known someone in policing who was so universally respected.
In my 30 years of policing, I have never known someone so universally liked and respected as Ron was by officers, staff, politicians and officials. He will be greatly missed and leaves a lasting legacy.
Chief constable Jo Farrell said: "Durham Constabulary and the people of County Durham and Darlington have lost a great colleague and friend.
"Ron was a radical thinker, an inspiring leader and a lifelong public servant who wasn't afraid to tackle head-on some of the most difficult issues facing society.
"I would like to offer Maureen and the rest of Ron's family my deepest sympathies and the condolences of everyone at the Durham Constabulary."

Mr Hogg's family are said to be very grateful for the messages they have received although are asking that no cards or flowers are sent.
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time
