"Rutland County Council is deeply saddened by the loss of retired chief constable Simon Cole. 

"Simon was an immensely dedicated public servant whose kindness and good nature was matched only by his determination to protect and serve the communities under his care. Throughout three decades in policing and 12 years at the head of Leicestershire Police, Simon earned the respect and admiration of everyone he worked with. I can scarcely imagine how much he will be missed.
