Kamla Sirjoo-Rampersad who served with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service for six years has died while undergoing treatment for Stage Four Metastatic Breast Cancer.
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has released the following release, extending their condolences.
“The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is saddened by the passing of No. 9143 WPC Kamla Sirjoo-Rampersad who lost the battle to breast cancer earlier today.
On the news of her passing, Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith and the Executive of the TTPS, have extended heartfelt condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues.
The TTPS will lend its support to all bereaved parties as much as it can during this trying time.
WPC Sirjoo-Rampersad, 57, who was ailing from Stage Four Metastatic Breast Cancer for a while, died at 10.30 am while undergoing treatment at a private hospital.
She leaves to mourn her four children – Randy Rampersad, 32, Ryan Rampersad, 31, Richard Rampersad, 29, and daughter, Renee Rampersad, 28. She also leaves behind one granddaughter.
“Kimmy, as she is affectionately called, was a strong woman. She was a fighter as she has been ailing with Stage Four Metastatic Breast Cancer for a little over eight years.
She will be missed dearly by all who knew her,” said her son, Ryan.
WPC Sirjoo-Rampersad was last attached to the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch as a part-time Special Reserve Police (SRP) Officer. She enlisted as a SRP in July 2014.
She is, however, also fondly remembered in her civilian capacity at the Police Stores.
Her colleagues at the Finance Branch remember her as a positive person with a fighting spirit which always inspired them to be greater versions of themselves.”
