Tragic passing of ex-Tulliallan PC

Published: 18 Jan 2013 13:00

A FORMER instructor at Tulliallan Police College died last week following a prolonged illness.

Sergeant Kevin Adamson (45), from Limekilns, was serving officer with Fife Constabulary who gave 25 years' service to the Force.

Born in St Andrews, Kevin joined the police in March 1987 serving the early part of his career in the Dunfermline and Oakley police stations.

In 1995, he transferred to the traffic department and then served for several years as an instructor at the Scottish Police College in Tulliallan.

He was promoted to a sergeant in 2005 and in recent years had worked at the Fife Constabulary Headquarters.

Kevin, who had been seriously ill for some time, died on Saturday 5 January at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Clydebank.

He is survived by his wife, Lorraine, and their two daughters, Katie and Sarah.

Chief Constable Andrew Barker said: "Kevin gave 25 years of outstanding service to the people of Fife.

"He was a first-class officer who dedicated his life to the service of others.

"He will be sorely missed by his colleagues, who held him in great esteem. My thoughts and the thoughts of the police officers and staff at Fife Constabulary, are with his family at this time."
