Message from our Chairman - PC Martin Jacobs 

It is with a heavy heart we have to inform you that PC Martin Jacobs has passed away after being taken ill at home on Wednesday 2 August. Martin was based within the Hampshire Police Federation office as the Misconduct Lead, his untimely death has shocked us all. 

Martin was engaged to Amber, Amber is receiving love and support from the Federation and the Constabulary. 

Martin was well known to many officers, his compassion and desire to help people was his strength. He was an invaluable part of our team and he will be missed terribly. Policing is a family, when we lose one of our own the impact is felt far and wide. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with Amber and Martins family at this difficult time.
