Sergeant Matt Ratana was known as a “big guy” to his colleagues – “big in stature and big-hearted”, Met Police commissioner Cressida Dick said.
He was a “lovely man, highly respected by officers and staff, by the public, including suspects he arrested or dealt with in custody”, she added.
The 54-year-old was shot inside Croydon custody centre just after 2am on Friday. The 23-year-old suspect is believed to have then turned the gun on himself and is still in a critical condition in hospital.
