Police Officer Sergeant Francia James-Liburd

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, as well as immediate family and friends of Police Officer Sergeant Francia James-Liburd, are still in shock over her sudden death.
The police officer, who is described by Police Commissioner Mr Michael B. Matthews, as “a great cop with a great sense of humour” collapsed at her Fort Hill home while she was off duty on Friday night October 6, 2017.
She was rushed to Peebles Hospital and was pronounced dead. Sergeant James-Liburd was 49 and lived on the main island of Tortola.
Was to be promoted-CoP
Sergeant James-Liburd, who is originally from Antigua but came to the Virgin Islands (VI) from childhood, spent some 28 years in the police force and, according to Commissioner Matthews, “was about to be promoted to inspector.”
Mr Matthews, clearly shaken, told our newsroom in an exclusive interview that Sergeant Liburd “was a good no nonsense officer, it’s a very sad loss.”
The top Cop has also ordered all flags in the VI on police buildings to be flown half mast, in respect of the deceased officer.
The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of Virgin Islands News Online extend our sincere condolences to Sergeant Francia James-Liburd’s immediate family and other loved ones.
