Tuesday, December 12, 2023

Following the tragic death of Assistant Chief Constable Peter Lawson at the weekend, His Majesty’s senior coroner for Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen has reviewed the circumstances.

It has now been established that Peter died from natural causes and funeral arrangements will be made in due course.

His Majesty’s senior coroner has confirmed there is no requirement for an inquest.

Our deepest condolences once again go out to Peter’s family, and we will support them as much as we can. Our thoughts are with them and everyone who knew Peter.

We want to respect their privacy and would ask that the public and media do so too. 

We will continue to offer support to all our staff and those who worked with Peter, as we mourn his loss.
