Cumbria Police Federation has set up a JustGiving page to help raise some money for the family of PC Nick Dumphreys who was tragically killed in a single-vehicle road traffic collision on Sunday 26th January.
A spokesperson for Cumbria Police Federation said:
“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”.
All monies raised via the campaign will be given directly to PC Dumphreys family.
Emergency Services News has set up a memorial group on social media for PC Dumphreys.
Since the tragic death of PC Andrew Harper in August last year, Emergency Services News has created a group for each member of the emergency services who had died while on duty.

Talking about the groups our Editor, John Johnson said:
“One of the reasons we have set these memorial groups up is to ensure that the general public never forgets the sacrifices made by the men and women who have died during the execution of their duties.
“Each of the groups is ‘private’, but anyone can join them.
“They can be used as a place where colleagues, family and friends can share their work-related memories of their colleagues.
“We must never forget or take for granted the sacrifices which are made by the men and women who serve in the emergency services”.
