RCMP Wear Red Campaign

RCMP Wear Red Campaign

Remembering Constable David Matthew Wynn, St. Albert, Alberta

It is with great sadness that the RCMP announces it will be launching another cross-Canada Wear Red Campaign in honour of fallen member Cst. David Matthew Wynn, who was shot during a routine investigation in a community just outside Edmonton last weekend. Cst. Wynn succumbed to his injuries in hospital in St. Albert, Alberta, on Wednesday, January 21st at the age of 42. The last RCMP wear red campaign took place in June 2014, following the loss of three police officers who died while on duty in a shooting in Moncton, North Bay’s sister city.

“Our thoughts are with our RCMP colleagues during this difficult time,” said Chief Paul Cook, North Bay Police Service. “We encourage the public to join the sea of red RCMP serges by wearing red on Monday January 26th to show support for Constable Wynn, his family and his loved ones.”

The memorial service for Constable David Wynn will take place on Monday January 26th at
2 p.m. at Servus Place, St. Albert, Alberta. It will be an RCMP Regimental Funeral.

The organizers have asked people to share their “wear red” photos on social media.
