We are all deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Paul McKeever. Paul was well known and admired by the NBPA during his time as leader of the Police Federation. He made genuine efforts to reach out to our organisation and to understand issues of race and diversity.
Paul was known as a true gentleman and a passionate strong leader who said what he meant and meant what he said. His intellect and knowledge of policing will be greatly missed, but most of all Paul McKeever the man who fought valiantly to preserve the office of constable will be dearly missed by all in policing.
We would like to express our deepest condolences to Paul’s family, friends and close colleagues.
