Candlelight vigil held for Const. Sarah Beckett
Funeral is planned for the Q Centre in Colwood Tuesday
As many as 3,000 people turned out last night in Langford, west of Victoria, for a candlelight march to remember Const. Sarah Beckett.
Participants walked about a kilometre to Veteran's Memorial Park from the intersection where Beckett died last week.
Plans are underway for an RCMP regimental funeral for 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.
Hundreds of Victoria area residents lined the streets last Thursday as police escorted Beckett's body to the airport so it could be flown to Vernon for tests.
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 last Wednesday. No charges have been laid, but police said the investigation is ongoing.
