Manitoba officers honour three fallen Moncton Mounties
Manitoba police officers will be at the regimental funeral held in Moncton, New Brunswick to honour three Mounties killed in the line of duty.
Seven Manitoba RCMP officers make up the official delegation and they will be led by Assistant Commissioner Kevin Brosseau, Commanding Officer of “D” Division and Staff Sergeant Major Wayne Foster.
The attending RCMP officers currently serve in the “D” Division and each has a connection to either the fallen officers or to New Brunswick. They serve in Winnipeg, Steinbach, and Portage la Prairie.
The Winnipeg Police Service is represented by Deputy Chief Dave Thorne and the Winnipeg Police Association by three officers from their board.
A book of condolences for the general public is in the foyer of “D” Division headquarters at 1091 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg or messages can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The RCMP Foundation has set up the Moncton Memorial Fund in memory of the three fallen officers. Donations can be made online only at www.rcmp.gc.ca/mem/fun-fonds-eng.htm
