Hertfordshire’s chief constable gets on his bike for charity
NEVER let it be said Frank Whiteley isn’t a wheely good chief constable.
For Hertfordshire Constabulary’s top cop got into the saddle to help raise thousands of pounds for a police charity.
He was part of a contingent of 114 police officers and staff who took part in spinathon sessions at Gosling Sports Park, next door to police HQ in WGC.
Wednesday’s challenge has raised �1,500 for COPS – Care of Police Survivors – a charity that aims to help families of police officers who die in the line of duty.
Mr Whiteley said: “My 30 minutes in the saddle seemed considerably longer, but I was delighted to join in and to see such a large group of colleagues supporting this event.

“As a police family, we are all committed to ensuring those loved ones who are left behind when an officer dies on duty are provided with the emotional and practical support they need and COPS has a key role to play.”
He thanked Gosling for allowing free access to the fitness studio and spinning bikes and Tylers Sportswear, based in Woodfield Road, WGC, for providing printed T-shirts for the instructors and organising commitee.
