Flag At Half-mast Nanaimo RCMP Detachment

Honouring Const. Sarah Beckett

A regimental funeral is planned for next Tuesday in the Q Centre in Colwood for Constable Sarah Beckett who was killed while on duty when a pickup truck collided with her cruiser.

The crash which occured in Langford at about 3:30 am last Tuesday claimed the life of the 11 year RCMP member who is also a wife and mother of two young children. She had just recently returned to duty following maternity leave.

A criminal investigation is currently under way and the driver of the pickup truck has been released with no charges being laid at this time.

BC Ferries announced they will be providing free travel on Tuesday and Wednesday for all first responders attending Beckett's funeral. There will be an extra sailing added at 10:00 am Tuesday.

The Victoria Division of the RCMP Veterans’ Association is helping by collecting donations in an account called Sarah Beckett Family “In Trust” at Coast Capital Savings Credit Union. Contributions to the family can be made at any coast Capital Savings Credit Union branch on Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland.
