A special operations police officer in Massachusetts has tragically died suddenly at just 42 years old, according to reports.
Stoughton Police Chief (SPD) Donna McNamara announced the sudden death of Officer Christopher A. Davis.
Davis, of Brockton, died suddenly in his home on December 31, 2022.
With 17 years of service for the SPD, Davis was an active member of the department’s Special Operations Unit.
He was also a recipient of the Distinguished Service Award in 2012.
“Officer Davis’s kindness, bravery, dedication, and devotion to his family, friends, the men and women of the Stoughton Police Department, and the Stoughton community will be greatly missed,” McNamara said in an announcement on January 1.
Davis served as SPD’s defensive tactics instructor.
Since 2011, he investigated fire-related incidents for the department as a certified arson investigator.
“He has been a dedicated member of the Stoughton Police Special Operations Unit, representing the Department with the utmost professionalism throughout the region,” McNamara said.
He was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton at roughly 9:45 pm on Saturday, where he was later pronounced dead.
Davis is survived by his fiancé, daughter, mother, brother, niece, and grandchildren.
“Please keep his family, friends, and the members of the Stoughton Police Department in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely difficult time,” McNamara said.
Details of Davis’ memorial service will be announced once they are available.
Davis was found unresponsive in his home Saturday night.
However, no cause of death has yet been made public.
