Saddened to hear of the loss of our BTP colleague, Mark "Birchy" Birch.
A former PC at Birmingham New Street from 1981-2011, latterly a member of police staff in the property store from 2012.
Our thoughts are with Mark's family, friends and colleagues at this sad time.
Chief Constable, Paul Crowther stated “Deeply saddened by the death overnight of colleague Mark Birch. He was very much part of the BTP family and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his wife, family, friends and colleagues.”
