Officer Alcamo was killed in an accident while responding to a call.

Officer Alcamo and his partner were responding to assist officers from the New York City Housing Authority Police Department with a call of an emotionally disturbed person in the Edgemere Housing Projects. As they travailed on Beach Channel Drive near 105th Street, the patrol car hit a wet patch in the road and Officer Alcamo's partner lost control of the car. The patrol car skid sideways and stuck a utility pole on the passenger side, killing Officer Alcamo.
