Statement by David Swann: Police and Peace Officer Memorial Day

CALGARY, AB (September 27, 2015): Dr. David Swann released the following statement to mark Police and Peace Officer Memorial Day:

“Every day, brave men and women go to work as police and peace officers, tasked with the job of keeping us safe; and every day the families of those brave men and women feel the unique mixture of pride in their loved one and fear that this may be the day that they don’t home.

“This year, Albertans were heartbroken when two of those brave men did not come home. As we mourned and continue to mourn Constable David Wynn and Constable Daniel Woodall, we are reminded of the debt we owe their families and all families of police and peace officers.

“To all of those who put their lives in danger to keep us safe, we give you our deepest thanks, always.”
