A wall commemorating fallen West Shore RCMP officers will be unveiled tomorrow at the Langford detachment, west of Victoria.
The unveiling also marks the second anniversary of the death of Const. Sarah Beckett, who was killed when her cruiser was rammed by a truck in 2016.
Beckett's family will attend tomorrow's ceremony and West Shore Const. Matt Baker says it's a chance to give Beckett “the honour she deserves.”
Kenneth Jacob Fenton, the driver of the pickup that hit Beckett, pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death, and received a four-year prison term last July.
