A 52 year old police officer based at Staines has died from Covid-19.

Surrey Police has announced the death of Sean Amey who passed away in hospital on Sunday.

Mr Amey had been a detention officer with the force for 20 years after serving in the navy in the early part of his career.

Surrey Police says “at this sad time, our thoughts are with his wife, Dawn and his sons Callum and Euan.”

From Staines custody team B to detention officer Sean Amey:

The names Mr Custody and - with your naval history - Uncle Albert have been used to describe you. I can think of no greater accolade to give you as it fits your persona so well.

You were a larger than life character, always ready with a story to tell (whether we wanted to hear it or not) and a love for Greggs Bakery that could only be rivalled by your love for Dawn and your boys. As a mentor you helped mould many a custody sergeant and detention officer alike during your service, and supported many colleagues through stressful times in your role as a Unison rep. Colleagues and ‘customers’ alike knew you and warmed to you, due to your unflappable and approachable manner. An example that many of us will continue to follow.

In the wake of the tragic news of your passing Terry, Chloe, Sarah, Jo, Stella, Marc, Hassan, Lucy and I are leading by your example and are extending our support to Dawn, Callum and Euan as we know you would do to any one of our families. This was a heart-warming trait that you demonstrated daily, extending compassion, a listening ear and your thoughts with anyone who needed them.

Sean, while the team are lost for words, I know that this is something that you would find funny as you very rarely were! While the corridors of custody will remain busy, they will be forevermore a quieter place to walk without your voice and presence.

Rest in Peace our dear friend.
