Tributes were paid last week to Kirkintilloch town centre police officer Bruce Kirkman (centre) who retired from the force after 30 years service.

Kirkintilloch Police Inspector Gerald Corrigan said: “Bruce spent the majority of his 30-year career serving the communities in East Dunbartonshire and is well-known and respected throughout the area.

“He will be missed by his colleagues and the public but of course we wish him all the very best for his well earned retirement.”
