Constable John Atkinson - RIP 
(en francais)

Const. Atkinson: Our community mourns

As an undercover officer with the province's anti-terrorism unit, Atkinson's job was lonelier than most. He toiled in anonymity and worked long hours away from his loving family to make his community -- our community -- a better place. He loved his job and he was good at it. We owe him a debt of respect for his service and his family, especially his young children, a debt for his sacrifice.


People may post their expressions of condolences online.

Books of condolences for signing by the public will be placed in five locations beginning at 10 a.m. today.

Locations
Lobby of City Hall;
AKO Neighbourhood Centre at 4170 Alice St.,
Forest Glade Community Centre at 3215 Forest Glade Drive;
College Avenue Community Centre, 3225 College Ave.,
and South Windsor recreational complex, 2555 Pulford St.

The books will remain at those locations for a week, then given to the Atkinson family.


There will be a candlelight vigil Tuesday at 8pm, Windsor Civic Terrace, Glengarry and Goyeau

Funeral will be Thursday at the St. Denis centre.

A memorial fund is being established, details of which will be available after 2pm this afternoon.
