South African Police Officers Memorial 28 JUN 2022 ·
Let’s never forget Warrant Officer Michael Jameson.
On Wednesday afternoon at about 14:15, Warrant Officer Michael Jameson was picking up his daughter from a school in Umbilo when he noticed a hijacking in progress. The member immediately placed himself on duty and responded to the incident.
Upon noticing that the member was armed, the suspects opened fire. The member returned fire but sadly succumbed to his injuries on scene.
Two vehicle's including a vehicle that was hijacked outside the school in Umbilo and another that was hijacked in Hammersdale by the pair have been found abandoned. This after the pair crashed both vehicles as they were evading arrest.
We give thanks for your service and sacrifice- the world is a better place because you were in it. We struggle, through our rage and grief, to send our deepest condolences to your family and colleagues, and the citizens you died protecting. We know your absence leaves a huge, gaping hole in our hearts and lives, but we know we will see you again, at the long table. Rest In Peace brother.
