Reflections for Sergeant Keith R. Levine

Great supervisor for us at the 26 Pct. Made you feel like you could approach him for anything. Great human being whom should respect and empathy for others. May perpetual light shine upon him. Peace be with his loved ones. Still seems like yesterday:;

Keith was a wonderful young man and an excellent Sergeant.
He worked for me at the NYPD Communications Division. I responded to Bellevue Hospital the night he was killed and rode in a Dept. Helicopter with Rabbi Kass up to Rockland County to notify his mother. It was the worst thing I ever had to do in my 33 years with the NYPD. God bless Keith.

I pray from the Repose of your Soul, Officer Levine. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for your courage to serve and protect strangers. Jesus said “ there is no greater love than a man lays down his life for others “- you lived that Gospel. It’s so sad you were taken from your family, friends and all those who still need you. God bless your family for all the suffering they have endured.

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

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.

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.

I worked with him at 911 communications. You could never forget his smile an he was always happy and willing to help. He was loved by all who knew him. God bless him and the family he left behind
