Tributes have been paid to a serving Thames Valley Police Sergeant who sadly passed away unexpectedly on Friday (12/6).
Sgt James Urwin had served with Thames Valley Police for 16 years and worked in the Milton Keynes area.
A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police said:
“James’s death is being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious, and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with James’s family, friends and colleagues.
“James’s family are being supported by specially trained colleagues from Thames Valley Police, and we would ask that their privacy is respected at this extremely difficult time.
Sgt Unwin had also served in the Metropolitan Police. A Met colleague said: “James was a lovely, caring man. Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues”.
John Apter, Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, tweeted to say:
“Thoughts are with the family, friends and colleagues of PS James Urwin at this difficult time. May he rest in peace”.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
