Atkinson Memorial Plaque Stolen From University Of Windsor

A plaque honouring fallen Windsor police officer John Atkinson has been stolen from the University of Windsor Campus.

Windsor Police Services were called to the site of the memorial on Tuesday after it was reported the glass had been shattered and the plaque was missing.

The plaque is housed in a hallway in university's Chrysler Building on Sunset Ave. near University Ave. It's described as a shadowbox containing a photo of the funeral at the St. Denis Centre and a replica badge. Police believe it went missing over the long weekend.

Atkinson was shot and killed in the line of duty back in 2006.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Windsor police or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
