Yvette Cooper MP on the news of the untimely death of Paul McKeever

Following the sad news of the death of Paul McKeever, Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, Yvette Cooper MP, Shadow Home Secretary said:

“This is terrible news. My thoughts today are with Paul's family, friends and colleagues.

“Paul was a tireless champion of British policing, a resolute and responsible advocate for the brave work police officers do up and down the country every day. He did this with compassion and charisma and he will be sorely missed not only by the Police Federation but by all who knew him.

“Paul was deeply committed to public service and the work of the police. He was himself a brave and committed police officer approaching 30 years of service. And he would doubtless have enjoyed new things on retirement too - which is why his sudden death is so sad.

“I will miss Paul very much. He was always thoughtful, had a great sense of humour and was always good company. My thoughts and deepest condolences are with Paul’s family, friends and all of the staff at the Police Federation, who I know respected him immensely at this terribly sad time.”
