“As is the norm, when it is a police funeral, they are given an official funeral. And a small participation is expected from across the country, bearing in mind the COVID measures that are still in place. So, indeed it is a fallen officer from within our ranks. We do sympathize with the family of the fallen officer. And indeed, some officers who were working with him are being affected as much as many of us are being affected by any fallen officers. Yes indeed, the normal police funeral procedures are being put in place while we prepare for that funeral.”


Jemmott died on the early hours of May twenty-eight at San Pedro while out on a pier with a Canadian woman, Jasmine Hartin.  According to her statement to police, she claims they were drinking together when Jemmott’s service revolver accidentally fired, a bullet hitting him in the back of the head.  She was charged with manslaughter by negligence and is out on bail pending trial.
