Reflections for Sergeant Keith R. Levine


Rest easy my brother...for that evil person who ended what would have been a full life, has been denied parole...again. You were not forgotten for
your brothers and sisters were there in full support, to ensure that justice

I am happy to report that parole for Michael Alston (the man who killed Officer Levine) for a period of 2 years. My thoughts and prayers be with Officer Levine's family. I hope they can find a way to heal from this terrible tragedy.

I am the coordinator of ODMP's no parole for cop killers program I had an email conversation with Officer Levine's Father. Even through email, I could tell how strongly this Man feels about the upcoming parole hearing, That was overshadowed by the love and pride he feels for His son. I hope the killer will be denied My thoughts and prayers are with his family

I met Keith Levine while we were both enrolling in an acting class,the same one, at H.B.studio.Keith noticed that we not only shared the same initials, but shared the same last name.(no relation).Keith was truly a down to earth,nice guy.That is what I thought of him.He turns out to be a brave hero as well.Glad I could say something about this exceptional cop and human being.

I said a little prayer today for Sergeant Levine and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

His was the first police funeral I ever attended as a rookie NYPD officer. I remember it like it was yesterday, that grey, cold morning on 5th Ave. It showed me the importance of attending them, to show support for a hero and his family. Sadly I would attend far too many police funerals after this one.

May God grant you eternal peace.

As a rookie officer in 1987, I was assigned to Midtown North, the 18th. One who stood out on my first squad assignment was Officer Keith Levine. We rode together often and instead of him treating me differently because of my inexperience; he took the opportunity to mentor and teach me the ropes.

Officer Levine, as I knew him, always had an infectious smile even during some difficult assignments. His leadership ability stood it.

Keith made Sergeant and moved on to another assignment as I moved to another as well. In spite of that, I never forgot him and his kindness.

Sadly the day after his death, I received a phone call from a fellow officer from the North. It was then that I learned of his demise. It was a pivotal point in my career as an officer with NYPD. My heart and spirit were extremely heavy.

Even today, as we approach National Police Week, I reflect on Keith and his sacrifice.

Keith, you may be gone but you are certainly not forgotten. I will forever carry you in my heart. Each day I try earnestly to be of service to the citizens of my community as you taught me to do many years ago.

Rest in peace, my brother until we see one another again.

I did business with Keith when he was in the Communications Section of NYPD. We spoke almost every day. He was a very happy person with a bright outlook on life and kind heart. Keith was always helping people and it didn't surprise me that he was doing just that the night he died. It is more than twenty years since Keith was killed but he will never be forgotten. He was a true hero and I miss him.

I worked with Keith at Midtown North. He was always upbeat and a great guy to be around. I was also fortunate to see him and is band( I believe they were called "Expressway") perform quite often in Rockland County. He was the lead singer and he was great! They were very popular. It is a real tragedy what happened to him. He had the ability to make you smile with his great personality. He will always be missed by those who knew him.

Thank you for your service Keith! It has been 19 years for your family and friends to miss your smile, that seems like a long time but I know they think of you everyday! I wrote a letter to the parole board to stop the release of your killer and I have encouraged other to also, I hope and pray he will remain in prison! God Bless your family and friends and Department!!!
