Officer Louis Remigio

 (1961-2017)

“Louie was a first class human being and exactly the kind of police officer you want serving your community; he was tough yet kind, empathetic, and fair. As a Chief, you always want to see that any interaction your officers have with community members are changing people’s lives for the better, and Officer Remigio embodied that one thousand percent.”

 

-Chief Fallon

Officer Remigio was a 30-year veteran of the Somerville Police Department, having joined the department in March 1988. Most recently, he served in the department’s Traffic Unit. Over his 30-year tenure, Officer Remigio received multiple awards for service to the community, including two Life-Saving Awards, a Meritorious Service Award, a Beyond the Call of Duty Award, and numerous commendations both by his colleagues and by community members. Our hearts are with his family during this time of unimaginable loss.
