Bill Berry MBE


Bill Berry MBE, passed away peacefully on 15th February 2021.  Bill was Secretary of the Grampian Joint Branch Board of the Scottish Police Federation 1983 – 1987.  He assisted hundreds of officers with a caring, firm and fair approach and was highly respected in police and government circles.

Bill was also an 8th Dan in judo, an international judo referee and a former chairman of JudoScotland.  He was awarded the MBE for services to Judo in 1995.

As a police officer, Bill had a quiet authority and never raised his voice but no one was ever in any doubt who was in charge.

A quiet man who had much to brag about, but never did.  A friend and mentor to many who will be missed by them all.
