Supt. Michael Luke

Chief of Police

Michael arrived in the Falkland Islands yesterday, having previously served as Detective Chief Inspector, Head of Investigations and Safeguarding, in the St Helena Police Service where he had been since 2018. Speaking of his appointment, Michael said: “I’m pleased to take up this post and take on the baton passed to me by Jeff McMahon. The role of Chief of Police is about service to the public and to your team, and I am ready to listen and work with the Falkland Islands community, as well as to further develop the security and safety of the Falkland Islands. I’m looking forward to getting on with the job and working with the team to develop our plans to improve the policing that we provide to our local community. Sara and I are really looking forward to becoming part of the community and joining in with as many volunteering and events as we can.”
