Sgt. Gregory Furtado was assigned to the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office detective unit, and was a member of the 79th Recruit Training Troop, state police said. He graduated from the State Police Academy in 2006.
“He spent his career in service to, and in protection of, the citizens of our Commonwealth,” state police wrote.
Furtado “strongly and professionally” led the district attorney’s Narcotics Task Force, the district attorney’s office said Saturday.
Furtado leaves behind a wife and children, state police said. “May the memories of him, and his life of service, sustain all who loved and knew him in the difficult days and weeks to come,” the department wrote.
The State Police Association of Massachusetts, a state police union, said on social media that funeral arrangements had not yet been released, but that it would release this information in the coming days.
No further information about Furtado’s death, including the cause of death, has been released.
