“We are very saddened to announce the passing of one of our retired officers.
Officer Jose “Joe” Correia passed away unexpectedly this week. Joe became a police officer in 1993 and retired in early 2020 after 27 years of service.
He worked as detective, and as a patrol officer in every sector of the city, however his presence was most notable in the south-end where he was known as a friendly face that always greeted his fellow officers with a smile or joke.
Joe, you will be fondly remembered by your brother and sister officers. Thank you for your service, and may you rest peacefully forever more.”- New Bedford Police Department.
