A bus with more than 30 members of the Lethbridge Police Service, Lethbridge Fire Department and Alberta Sheriffs headed to Edmonton on Monday to take part in the march and regimental funeral service for the two Edmonton Police officers who were shot and killed. Lethbridge Police Association president Jay McMillan says when something like this happens, they will generally try to send as many members as possible. Adding that it is important to show support to the families of the slain officers along with their brothers and sisters in blue. McMillan says that a regimental funeral such as this will generally draw law enforcement from across North America.
On March 16th Constables Travis Jordan and Brett Ryan, were fatally shot by a 16-year-old boy when they were responding to a domestic dispute. The gunman also shot his mother before turning the gun on himself.
