Policeman Alfred Clarke has passed away at the young age of 45 years old.

On Tuesday (July 16), Constable Clarke tragically passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he had been admitted after a brief illness.

His passing has been felt across the Royal Barbados Police Force. He was a 24-year veteran of the Force, last attached to the Worthing Police Station.

He was the consummate police officer, according to the press statement issued by the Force. "He was a recipient of three commendation awards for outstanding police work. He was dedicated and passionate about the field of Law Enforcement and spent many years as a criminal investigator in the Northern Division where he played an integral role in the investigation and solving of a number of crimes in that Division."
