Devastating news. Thoughts with family, friends and close colleagues of PC Dean Morrison
The body of PC Dean Morrison, 40, was recovered from the Barry Burn in Carnoustie at around 12.40pm on Sunday.
His death is being treated as unexplained and there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.
Police Scotland said PC Morrison had 16 years of service covering the Tayside area.
Chief Superintendent Andrew Todd, Divisional Commander for Tayside Division, said: “Dean was a highly respected officer, who was extremely well liked and popular with his colleagues. He was thoroughly professional in his work.
“His death is a great tragedy and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him and we will do all we can to support them during this distressing time.
“Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
