Katy Bourne OBE, Chair of the APCC said:
“It is a day of great sadness for us and, on behalf of my PCC colleagues, I would like to offer our deepest condolences to Ron’s family, friends and everyone at Durham Constabulary.
“We will all have our individual and fond memories of Ron who was totally committed to policing and an exemplary public servant.”
Mark Burns-Williamson OBE, APCC Vice Chair and Labour Group Lead said:
“We are deeply saddened to hear of the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Ron Hogg, former Police Crime and Victims’ Commissioner (PCVC) for Durham.
“Ron was a hugely respected PCC amongst his colleagues, staff and the communities across Durham and more widely. He will be deeply missed and leaves a lasting legacy of impressive achievement.
“Ron made a significant and lasting contribution to the national work of the APCC, in particular through his work around workforce transformation and reform. PCCs across England and Wales have so much to be grateful to Ron for and will miss his infectious enthusiasm, dry sense of humour and his deep commitment to public service and keeping our communities safe.
“Our thoughts are with his wife, family, friends and colleagues at such a difficult time.”
