RCMP regimental funeral planned for Const. Sarah Beckett
Funeral is planned for the Q Centre in Colwood on Tuesday
Plans are underway for an RCMP regimental funeral for Const. Sarah Beckett, the RCMP officer who died this week in a collision in Langford, B.C.
The funeral for Beckett will be held on Tuesday at the Q Centre in Colwood, according to information released by the Capital Regional District.
The arena seats about 3,100 people.
Yesterday, hundred of Victoria area residents lined the streets as police escorted Beckett's body to the airport so it could be flown to Vernon for tests.
The return flight is due back this afternoon. There will be a second procession to escort the casket from the airport to Sands Funeral Home in Colwood home starting around 2:30 p.m. PT today.
Beckett, an 11-year member of the force who spent her entire career on Vancouver Island, is survived by her husband and two young children.
The driver of the other vehicle was arrested at the scene and released Wednesday. No charges have been laid, but police said the investigation is ongoing.
