PC Russ Wylie

It is with heartfelt sadness by all officers and staff of Humberside Police, that on the 14th April 2015, we lost an exceptional friend and colleague. PC Russ Wylie was a highly respected roads policing officer that was sadly involved in an incident whilst serving the public.
His loss is felt throughout the force and our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this time.
He will never be forgotten.

Any Officers that need support through this time, please contact your local rep or the office, and we will provide as much assistance as we can.

 

His family are also hoping to raise some money for the Air Ambulance in memory of Russ.  If you are able to make a donation, no matter how small, please click on the below link

Such a tragic loss of a truly nice guy. Fond memories of our time at training school when we joined in 2007, I have some great memories but what stands out most is your beaming smile and infectious laugh. RIP Russ, double crew with our late colleague PC Steve GOOD and patrol the streets of heaven. Thoughts go out to Russ's family and friends. Bye for now Russ xx Sarah Carr xx

My mate Russ. I am so proud to have served alongside you. From your first shift on independent patrol eight years ago to your last patrol yesterday I am grateful that I was by your side for both. You were one of the best and it is sickening and cruel that you are gone. There is no fairness, there is no reason just utter sorrow. You have saved me from a good hiding on many occasions and I am indebted to you for this. I’m sorry I’ll never ride with you again. I have so many great memories of you and I hope that one day I can smile when I think about them. Mine and Daniella’s thoughts are with you, your mum, dad and Roxanne. John.
- John Rickells

Russ, we had some good times together car sharing to work and putting the world to rights…and then doing our own little bit for real out at Immingham! Whenever I hear Florence & the Machines it still reminds me of you every time and brings back some great memories! I was so pleased for you when you got your dream move to traffic but gutted at the same time as you had been helping to cut my fuel bill in half! Thanks for being a part of my life, it has been a pleasure to have been your friend and colleague. My heartfelt thoughts are with your family. ‘Pc Wylie, it’s a stand down, stand down…end of watch.’
- Andy Clark

Russ, I still remember taking you and your little sister to Scarborough 20 years ago. Since then we've had plenty of laughs on motorbikes and mountain bikes. Including on the Isle of Man when you 'arrested' someone for stealing a friends baseball cap, which helped you decide to be a copper. You grew up into a great bloke and a great copper; you were very strong for your parents when we tragically lost your little sister Emma. When you joined me in the Police, you said nothing you came across at work could be worse than that. Rest in peace with Emma in heaven. Love Bob
- Bob Blake

Even though we were on different courses you always made time to stop for a chat, one of life's truly good guys, such a sad loss, my thoughts are with friends and family,RIP mate X

Russ, you were a good friend in and out of work and smile to myself at many good memories we had. (usually after a few sherbets!!) You were a good man and will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.
- Pete WATMOUGH

Russ, you were our colleague, friend and brother. We were all devastated by your loss. The journeys to work will never be the same without you. I am proud to have known you and it was an honour to be your 'sarge'. You will always be remembered. RIP buddy!

Russ, we never met but as a fellow advanced police rider I know the simple joy bikes brought you and the passion you had for the job. My heartfelt good wishes go to all of your family and friends. You will not be forgotten. RIP.

Russ, you were a thoroughly decent man; good, honest and kind. At work and in your private life you were the kind of person who went out of your way to help others and who brought positivity to those around you. My thoughts are with your family and loved ones. It was a privilege to share a small part of your journey with you. Rest in peace friend.
- Chris Woodhead

Words cannot describe how losing you has affected so many people, you were one of a kind, a truly amazing person and I am immensely proud to have called you not only a great colleague but also a great friend. We've had many laughs at work and away from work and they will be memories that are cherished. You'll forever be part of our family and will never be forgotten. All our thoughts are with Roxanne, your family and friends. Goodbye mate, and I hope we all do you proud next week.
- Tom Blake

Russ, haven't seen you for a few years but I'm glad that the last time I did, I repeatedly told you how good it was to see you and catch up! You were the first new friend I made when we started South Hunsley in the same form, and I count myself lucky that I had the pleasure of going through secondary school with you. I've so many happy memories. You were a great, genuine, funny guy, and by the sounds of things, you never changed. Thoughts always with your family, fiance, and friends. So very sorry to be writing this, rest in peace Russ xx
- Laura Applegarth

Russ, I only knew you for a short while when we both worked in Grimsby but what was clear above all else and something which everyone who knew you recognised, was what a genuine guy you were, always with a smile on your face. It's with great sadness that I write this but hope that your Fiancee, parents & loved ones take great comfort in the fact you were such a popular, well thought of guy. Rest in Peace.

You would always say hello if we passed each other in the station corridors and you always have a beaming smile on your face. We only knew in passing but your loss has touched many hearts because as a fellow police officer it feels like we have lost a family member. RIP matey and may you shine as bright as a star in heaven.x
- Helen Dunks

A tragic loss of a young and respected bobby. I remember you from training at Courtland road. Rest in peace Russ.
- Karl Bullock

Russ, You liked baked beans on crumpets, The lighthouse family and the Radio 2 debate at lunch time. Despite all this you were one of the greatest friends anyone could ever ask for. You were there to pick me up when I fell down (literally) and calm my nerves on my Wedding Day. You welcomed me in to your family and you will always be part of mine. We shared so many good times both at work and at home. Our days at Immingham together are no doubt the best I’ve had even though we were SO busy ALL of the time you always found the time to beat me at ‘The Limes Challenge’. I, like many others are missing you more than words can describe. I don’t know what you would make of all this attention but it is the least you deserve. Our thoughts are with Roxanne, your Mum and Dad. So long my good friend, until we meet again. Your mate Barnesy
- Gareth, Kim & Harrison

Russ, you'll never read this: But since the first shift I spent with you. Your passion for roads policing, it inspired me! I have a black rat sticker on my ticket book...because of you, I have my radio in my case because of you, God I don't wear my stab vest I wear my fleece with hi viz over the top, because that's how you did it. It all sounds very stupid! But mate you inspired me! And I want to be like you, achieve what you have achieved! You took me on my first blue light run , You'll always have a place in my heart and form a massive part of my career! Your a true gent! And such a loss for Humberside Police. Your leaving behind a beautiful fiancé and family and my thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time!

Russel. We are truly, truly devastated. Words cannot express the heartbreak. The most caring friend anyone could ever wish for. The only other person on this planet that would tell John to 'text me when you're home' so that you knew he was safe. You have been such a big part of John's life all the time I have known him and you have helped him so much more than you will ever know, I wish I could have thanked you for that. We will do everything we can to support your friends, family and Roxanne at this awful time. We love you and miss you terribly. Sleep tight. xx

There really are no words xxx

You used to call me your Police Mam and would come to me for advice on girls and law explanations when you didn't understand! You grew into a fine confident officer who achieved his ultimate goal of traffic, so hats off to you kid, you did well. Stand down now Son, big kisses from your Police Mam xxx
