Premier Rachel Notley provided the following statement on the 17th annual Police and Peace Officer Memorial Day.
“Today, we recognize and remember the 100 brave men and women who lost their lives as they worked to keep Albertans safe.
“This year Albertans lost two exceptional men in the line of duty: RCMP Constable David Wynn and Edmonton Police Service Constable Daniel Woodall.
“My heartfelt condolences go out to all of the officer’s families, friends and fellow police officers for their losses. Each and every day police and peace officers around Alberta put themselves in harm’s way in order to serve and protect Albertans, and for this we owe them and their loved ones a debt of gratitude. Our deepest appreciation and thanks go to these brave women and men. Your every effort is deeply appreciated and valued.”
