Shot Policeman laid to rest.
Senior officer, ranks and his colleagues from the Tactical services unit, attended the service.
Speaking on behalf of the Commissioner of Police was assistant Commissioner George Viphus and he said the young died as a hero and the person who pulled the trigger a coward.
He then made a pitch for public support to rid criminal elements out of our society. He said to the force Cumberbatch was a hero, a young man who had just begun his career in the noble institution the Guyana Police Force.
The young policeman and father of two was ordering a man out of his yard when he was shot twice at close range. The incident occurred at his residence at North Sophia.
According to his Mother Jacqueline Cumberbatch a man came at the policeman’s home asking for Quacy. She said the Policeman’s wife answered and told the man no Quacy lives there but the suspect refused to leave the Yard. He shot Cumberbatch when he was asked to leave the yard.
