Loss of WPC Nedd-Robertson casts ‘sombre feeling’ over Police Force, Commissioner says, as colleagues grieve

The Police Force has been plunged into mourning, once again, with the loss of  Woman Police Constable #515 Alesia Nedd-Robertson, described as being full of love and laughter and someone who was always ready to share a word of encouragement.

The officer passed away in the United States on Wednesday, November 10, while receiving medical treatment. She died at the age of 44 years.

Constable Nedd-Robertson is survived by her husband and two children, as well as her brother and fellow officer, #178 Constable Ewarth Nedd.

A press release says that Commissioner Atlee Rodney has reached out to her family, close relatives, and colleagues to express his sympathies on behalf of the Police Force.

Rodney says that “Mrs. Nedd-Robertson will be greatly missed for her quiet and humble personality,” and that a sombre feeling now overshadows the organization.

The Constable joined the Force on November 5, 2004, and served for 17 unbroken years.

During her career, Constable Nedd-Robertson worked at the St. John’s Police Station, as well as in the Telecoms Department and Stores.  She was stationed at the High Court of Justice for some time, as well.

The Prime Minister, Attorney General, and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Legal Affairs, Public Safety and Labour, as well as members of the Police Service Commission are also mourning Nedd-Robertson’s passing.

This year, 2021, has seen quite a number of losses – from illness, vehicular accidents, and even homicide – for the Police Force.
