We are profoundly sad to announce the death of Active Boston Police Officer John O’Keefe who passed away on Saturday January 29, 2022 while off duty.
Police Officer O'Keefe was appointed to the Boston Police Department on October 31, 2005 and after graduating from the Boston Police Academy, he held assignments in District E-18, District C-11, and the S.O.R.I. Unit.
John O'Keefe stepped up when others wouldn't or couldn't. He gave back more than he ever took. He was a dedicated public servant. He believed in the mission of the Department, and was always there for his fellow officers. He received multiple commendations and awards over his career. He was well liked and respected throughout the department. Please keep Police Officer John O'Keefe, his family and friends, in your thoughts as you go about your day. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May he rest in Peace.
