South Simcoe Police Service Funeral
On October 11, 2022, the Barrie Police Service was shocked and saddened to learn of the line of duty deaths of two South Simcoe Police Service Officers, Constable Morgan Russell and Constable Devon Northrup.
Upon learning of this terrible event, the Barrie Police Service quickly assisted our neighbouring police service. That night, Barrie Police Service Communication Operators relieved the South Simcoe Communications Unit and front-line officers attended the scene to continue the investigation while the South Simcoe Police Service family dealt with this unthinkable tragedy. Our Peer Support Team reached out to offer their services and support. Our Service Chaplain sat with the families, offering condolences and a shoulder to cry on. In the following days, our members also assisted the Ontario Provincial Police in planning and facilitating the funeral for both officers on October 20 at the Sadlon Arena in Barrie.
Thousands of officers attended the service from across the country, and members of the Barrie Police Service were instrumental behind the scenes in ensuring the event went smoothly and respectfully.
We thank the City of Barrie and the community for coming together and providing donations of food and drinks for the funeral and their many words of support for not only the South Simcoe Police Service but all those in policing. The Barrie Police Service will continue to support the South Simcoe Police Service as they heal from this tragedy.
