Cumbria Police Federation are raising £100,000 to help the family of PC 1724 Nick Dumphreys, who died on duty in a road traffic collision.

Police officers across Cumbria and the rest of the UK go to work every day to do their duty. We know there is a risk when we put on the uniform but we rightly expect to go home safe at the end of each shift. Nick was a caring and compassionate man who was proud to serve the public.

He loved the job he did and adored his family. Sadly on very rare and horrendous occasions a colleague makes the ultimate sacrifice. All our thoughts are with Nick’s wife, two young children, family, friends and close colleagues.

The family of PC Dumphreys will receive all money raised.
