The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is now in mourning following the death of one of its members, inspector Franklin Hunter, on Wednesday (May 24).

The police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), in a press release, said, Hunter’s sudden passing occurred while he was off the island on leave, where he suffered a medical emergency.

Hunter, who was assigned to the Mt Salem Police Station, in St James, collapsed while he was vacationing in the United States. “He collapsed and never recovered,” the release said.


The CCU said Hunter “served with distinction at Mt Salem for approximately five years, leaving an indelible mark on the community and the Jamaica Constabulary Force.”

 “His remarkable work in the Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO) set a high standard for others to follow, earning him the respect from his fellow colleagues as well as members of the Jamaica Defence Force,” the release said.

“Inspector Hunter’s passing is a profound loss for our organisation, the community, and all those who had the privilege of knowing and working alongside him,” it further stated.

Hunter is remembered as a committed member of the organisation, who was well-loved and respected by his peers.
