A THAMES Valley Police officer collapsed and died at Milton Keynes Police Station yesterday morning (Tuesday 27 September).

The officer collapsed and sadly could not be resuscitated.

The officer is not being named by police at this stage.

Thames Valley Police Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Ross said yesterday: “This morning a serving police officer was taken ill at his desk in Milton Keynes Police Station.

“Unfortunately, despite attempts to revive him, he tragically passed away. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and his colleagues in Milton Keynes.”

Milton Keynes’ police chief, Supt Gez Chiariello, took to social media to say thank you for the compassion shown towards the late officer: ‘A massive thank you for all of the messages, comments and retweets of @tvp_mk sad news yesterday. Your support is appreciated #ThinBlueLine’.

Several of the officer’s colleagues have posted a profile picture of a black square intersected with a thin blue line on their Facebook profiles, in tribute to their workmate.

The thoughts of Care of Police Survivors are with the officer’s family at this sad time and we will be there to support them whenever they need us.
