Jamaican cop dies on the job – Fought through pain to complete final shift

It was a sombre mood at the Cross Roads Police Station in Kingston on Tuesday following his sudden death the previous day.
Walker, 62, served in the Jamaica Constabulary Force for 35 years, giving all his years of service at the aforementioned station.
Inspector Hopelyn Henry remembered the late cop as an employee with an outstanding work ethic, often going beyond the call of duty.
On Monday, Walker had complained about a pain in his leg while at work and Henry recommended that he elevate it to reduce the swelling.Four hours before Walker’s passing, another district constable, Tamara DaCosta, 42, was pronounced dead at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in St James.
DaCosta was assigned to detention and courts in the St James Police Division.
