My husband and I would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Constable Sarah Beckett. We cannot imagine what you are going through at the shock of her sudden and tragic passing while on duty. We thank you for your sacrifice as we thank her for her sacrifice and service to our communities on Vancouver Island.

But may there be arms to hold you and love to comfort you, one day at a time;
may Sarah’s children know that their mother chose an admirable and noble profession, that she was respected by Canadian citizens for doing that work, and that she was greatly loved;
and may the Universe provide an abundance of tenderness for you.

So sorry for the loss of RMCP Cst. Beckett.  Thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice.

No words can comfort you right now but please know that the RCMP family - both serving and retired - stand beside you at this time and grieve alongside you. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. I am a retired member of the RCMP and worked at West Shore Det. for about a dozen years. My daughter is also a member as was my late husband. We are a police family and while we all know the risks of this occupation it still hits so hard when it becomes a reality. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll be praying for you.

My heart is aching for the loss of my fellow Mountie. Even more so for her family, her children. Sarah like so many before you and unfortunately those after you, risked your life whenever you put on our uniform. You are a hero. I will think of you a lot today and often while I continue our duty on the line. I pray for your family.

Corporal Leanne Alexander
Surrey RCMP

My heart brakes for Cst.Sarah Beckett and her family.
I'll pray for her husband and children that they get some sort of peace back in their lives.  Cst.Sarah Beckett was a hero not only to her family but the community she served.

God Bless, Connie Premack

My sorrow is, of course, for Sarah's family especially for her young children who have lost a person whom they love so much. They will never again see her smile or feel her arms around them. I also feel deep sadness for everyone she works with who will miss her support and wisdom. I'm sad also for the RCMP as an organization because they have lost a little bit of the change she would have helped to happen by being a female member. There are too few men & even fewer women willing to risk their lives by just going to work every day Their commitment allows the rest of us all to feel safer than we would without them.
My brother is a police officer and was an RCMP member for 25 years and we have another family member at depot right now. Everyone in our family feels related to every other RCMP member. Each officer's loss feels like ours as well. We didn't know Sarah but we do know the quality and caliber of woman and person is because she had to be to get into the RCMP. It is an elite and exceptional group of men and women. Every member that is lost is an unending tragedy for every one of us. My prayers will be with you all everyday. I am so sad that you have lost such a special woman from your lives.

Gillian Seaman
