One of our provincial counterparts, Rhonda Commodore, was killed in a crash near The Pas, Manitoba on November 6, 2014 when the transport van she was in left the road and overturned. At the time, she was transporting six inmates from The Pas Correctional Centre to Dauphin Correctional Centre. Her fellow officer and all six inmates in the vehicle suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Rhonda was one of four police and peace officers honoured at the 38th annual Canadian Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Service that took place on Sunday, September 27 on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. The event is held every year on the last Sunday in September to remember the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
Members of CSC’s Ceremonial Unit were on hand to mark this occasion, and CSC’s photographer Michael Geisterfer was there to capture these photos.
