Two Saanich police officers are travelling to Kent, Wash. to represent the department at a public memorial to be held for a state trooper who was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Feb. 23.
Washington State Patrol trooper Tony Radulescu was a 16-year veteran of his police force.
“These are hard-working men and women that are out making communities safe everywhere in law enforcement, and it’s our obligation to show support,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “We attend all too many funerals like this, unfortunately.”
Radulescu’s memorial service is set to take place on Thursday afternoon.
