Community-support officer, 36, found dead at home
AN ISRAELI-BORN police community-support officer was found dead in his home in Golders Green last Friday.
Guy Sagi, 36, had been a member of the Wealdstone Safer Neighbourhoods team of Harrow Borough Police since last November. His death was not thought to be suspicious. A post-mortem took place on Tuesday, and an inquest into Mr Sagi’s death was opened and adjourned. His body was due to be flown back to Israel for burial on Wednesday.
Wealdstone colleague Sergeant Paul Mills said: “Guy was a fantastic human being and was an absolute inspiration to everyone on the team.
“In the short time that I knew him, he became a personal friend. Guy will be sorely missed by all the team. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this extremely difficult time.”
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are uniformed staff who, while not having the powers of a police officer, contribute to community safety in local neighbourhoods.
