A contingency of DRP officers and civilians left early this morning to pay their last respects to fellow officer Valerie Gignac today. Constable Gignac was killed in the line duty on Dec. 14 while responding to a person in distress call.
Our contingent of 43 members will attend the funeral in Laval, Quebec at the Saint Vincent de Paul Church at 2 p.m. Police officers across North America, as well as Québec Lieutenant Governor Lise Thibault and Laval Mayor Gilles, will take part in the funeral. The funeral procession will begin at Collège Laval and finish at the church. Constable Gignac will be buried in her hometown of Québec City.
Ville Laval has set up a special e-mail address for anyone wishing to send their condolences. The address is email@example.com.
