Campbell River RCMP wish to thank the local community:

As many may have heard by this time, The Campbell River RCMP suffered a tragic loss this morning, July 8th, 2021.

During an incident this morning in the 2000 block of the South Island Highway, Police Service Dog Gator was stabbed and sadly succumbed to his injuries.

Gator was born May 1st, 2014 and graduated training on June 10th, 2016. Since that time, Gator has been a very big part of the Campbell River RCMP family. Gator has saved lives, solved crimes, and just lifted the spirits of the officers in our detachment by being present, and today he made the ultimate sacrifice while on duty.

Since news of Gator's passing, a makeshift memorial has been started by members of the community outside the Campbell River RCMP Detachment.

Our collective hearts are truly broken right now, said Cst Maury Tyre. We know that the community feels this loss as well and we would like to thank them for the outpouring of support and well wishes.
