All the Staff and membership of the PFOA thoughts are with the family and colleagues of Pc Nicola Hughes and Pc Fiona Bone who were murdered five years ago today.
Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone were murdered by Dale Cregan after they were called out to a house in Mottram in Longdendale on September 18, 2012Five years ago today Dale Cregan, a fugitive who had already slaughtered two gangland rivals, dialled 999 to make a bogus report of a burglary.His aim was to kill police officers - any police officers - in a perverse act of revenge: he was furious at what he deemed to be the unfair focus on his family, and in particular his mother, while he was on the run.

PFOA assisted by offering counselling/coaching support to officer’s family. A respite break was granted to allow the officer and his family to get away and spend some valuable time together as a family unit.
The PFOA purchased a new cross trainer and have loaned this to the officer to enable him to remain active and hopefully return to Ops.
PFOA arranges support for the officers involved prior to the Inquest and after by way of a respite breaks and NLP Coaching or Counselling.
