One year memorial marks the tragic death of West Shore RCMP officer
A solemn ceremony will be held Wednesday in Langford to mark the year anniversary of the death of a revered member of the West Shore RCMP.
Const. Sarah Beckett, a married mother of two, was killed in the line of duty April 5, 2016 when her police cruiser was struck in a Langford intersection.
Mounties will hold a memorial outside the Langford detachment at 698 Atkins Avenue. A chaplain will conduct a small service at noon, and the public is welcome to attend.
The suspect charged in connection with Beckett’s death, Kenneth Jacob Fenton, is set to appear in court Thursday after a series of delays.
He’s facing charges including impaired driving causing death, flight from police causing death and dangerous driving causing death.
