The Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF, has been plunged into mourning following the death of a popular Police Inspector, Miguel Johnson.
Inspector Johnson died at the National Chest Hospital in St. Andrew on Sunday.
He died of Covid-19 complications.
The policeman was 43-years-old.
At the time of his passing, he was stationed at the JCF Special Operations Branch.
Inspector Johnson had also served at the Mobile Reserve Branch of the Constabulary and the then Constabulary Communication Network, CCN.
Inspector Johnson leaves behind children, including a 1-year-old daughter.
On Sunday, several of Inspector Johnson’s colleagues took to social media to mourn his passing.
They described him as a committed policeman and a decent human being.
Some expressed regret that despite the Covid-19 vaccine being available to frontline workers in Jamaica, including the police, since March this year, Inspector Johnson declined to take the jab.
A few of Inspector Johnson’s colleagues say up to a few weeks ago they had pleaded with him to agree to be inoculated but he decided against the move.
