The Negril police in Westmoreland again went beyond the call of duty on Saturday afternoon, proving their commitment to serving.
It happened about 3:15 p.m. when a 35-year-old unemployed woman of MorelandHill district, in Hanover, who was in an advanced stage of pregnancy walked into the station begging the police for taxi fare to go to the hospital.
However, before the police could give her the money, it became obvious that the woman had started the process of delivering the child.
According to Constable Densil Scott, the Constabulary Communication Network laison officer for Negril the police were not prepared for such an occasion, they did not panic.
He said Inspector Nadine Grant-Brown, who is also the sub-officer in charge of the station, and two other female constables delivered the woman's baby boy.
"It was a humanitarian situation and we as officers have sworn to serve and protect," said Constable Scott.
"The baby was delivered without any problem whatsoever, it just about brought tears to our eyes."
The woman who is the mother of five other children was taken to hospital by the police along with paramedics from the Negril Fire Station.
This is the second time that a baby has been delivered at the Negril Police Station. The first was during Hurricane Gilbert in 1988.
