Joe Canepa, former Commissioner of Police, passed away from natural causes on Sunday. He was 79-years-old.  

Mr Canepa was Commissioner when three IRA suspects were shot dead in 1988. He also led the RGP through one of its most difficult moments in recent history; the smuggling riots in the summer of 1995. He retired from the RGP in 1997. 

More recently, Mr Canepa worked towards promoting and safeguarding the interests of pensioners on the Rock as Chairman of the Penisioners Association.
 
Our condolences to his family.
