A NSW police officer who took his own life last month has been identified as father-of-two Sergeant Matthew Theoklis, 7NEWS.com.au reports.

The father of three-year-old twin girls was found dead at the Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills on November 30.

Theoklis, known as ‘Theo’, leaves behind his fiancee Rebekah, also a serving member of the NSW Police Force, and daughters Brooke and Sophie, who “adore their dad”.

He had been a police officer since 2005 and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in December 2019 for the Eastern Beaches Police Area Command, according to a NSW Police fundraiser for his heartbroken family.

At the time of his death, Sgt. Theoklis was performing duties with the Major Events and Emergency Management and State Planning Unit.

“Theo was a well-respected member of the NSW Police Force who took immense pride in his job,” a statement on the fundraiser read.

“He performed his duties with the highest of professionalism and will be remembered for the fun and antics, for which he was renowned.

“Theo was a wonderful father who cherished his girls and would constantly talk about them.”

More than $50,000 has been pledged to a NSW Police Legacy fundraiser that will be put towards the “ongoing support and care of Brooke and Sophie throughout their lives”.
