Cobourg Police Honour Roll
May, about 19 years ago...
May 15th, 2004
DETAILS: At approximately 03:00 hours, Constable Garrett responded to a call involving the alleged robbery of an 18-year-old Cobourg resident. Constable Garrett was unaware that in fact there was no robbery and he was being lured into a planned ambush. When Constable Garrett arrived he began taking the details of the alleged robbery and radioed his colleagues a description of a suspect. This left Constable Garrett alone with the supposed victim while the other officers searched for a suspect. While trying to help this apparent victim, Constable Garrett was suddenly attacked with a knife and suffered a mortal wound to his throat. Although dying, Constable Garrett somehow managed to draw his firearm and pursue his attacker, firing off his entire clip of 17 bullets. Constable Garrett was able to wound his murderer with his last shot before he succumbed to his injury. Troy Davey, who murdered Constable Garrett, was arrested at the Cobourg Hospital when he attended as a result of the gun shot injury.
