The regimental funeral for RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett will take place at the Q Centre in Colwood next Tuesday, April 12th at 2 pm.
The RCMP confirmed the time in a press release late this afternoon.
The funeral procession will see approximately four thousand RCMP, police and military officers march along Island Highway from Wilfert Road to the Q Centre beginning at 12 noon.
The City of Colwood says that Island Highway will be closed to all vehicle traffic between Wilfert Road and Wale Road for a period of about 2.5 hours between 11:30 am and 2 pm on Tuesday.
Officers will be stationed along the route to ensure public safety.
Members of the public who wish to show their support may use the sidewalks during the march.
The RCMP says as it is an extremely difficult time, Const. Beckett’s family has once again asked for privacy around their property and funeral home in the coming days.
The RCMP is extremely grateful for the outpouring of public support and condolences.
Please continue to leave your thoughts and prayers for the family of Const. Sarah Beckett. [email protected]
