Brookline Police Officer Missing

I blogged about Officer Shea the other night. Unfortunately, he is still missing. In an effort to keep people alert, we are again posting his picture and a description of  Officer Shea and his car.

I know a lot of cops read this blog and due to the nature of our job, we are often out on the street. Please keep Officer Shea and his plate in your mind as you drive around.

No matter how large the cities or how small the towns we patrol, we are all exposed to daily stressors that many civilians just don’t understand. Don’t hesitate to get help or speak to someone you trust if you feel these stresses are getting to you.

Like the sticker on a fellow cop’s motorcycle helmet says, “sometimes there’s justice, sometimes there’s just us”. Lets stick together and work for a happy ending to this story.

Police are asking the public for assistance in finding Police Officer Thomas Shea, 41, of Canton, who was last seen with a friend in Natick on Aug. 16.

Shea was last seen operating his gray 2005 Toyota Avalon, with a Massachusetts Registration of 60MG04. He is described as white, about 165 pounds and 5 feet 10 inches tall. Shea was reported missing to the Canton Police Department on Aug. 26.

Anyone with information about Shea’s whereabouts is being asked to call Brookline Police at 617-730-2222 or the Canton Police Department at 781-821-5090.
