Lord Stevens of Kirkwhelpington became Honorary President of Police Credit Union in October 2007.
The former Metropolitan Police Commissioner completed 42 years’ police service, holding numerous posts across the country’s forces before being named Commissioner at Scotland Yard in 1999.
He was knighted Sir John Stevens in 2000 and became a life peer on retiring in January 2005.
Often known as the “copper’s copper”, he was already famed for his extensive enquiries involving Northern Ireland’s security forces since which he handled two high profile enquiries – the death of Princess Diana and allegations of British football corruption.
Among his many achievements, he can list the creation of Convoy 2000, a charity set up to improve the quality of life for Romanian orphans, people with AIDS and disabled children. He also holds pilot licences for multi-engine and single jet aircraft.
