Dear Bob,

Once again it is with a heavy heart that I write on behalf of the Executive, Board of
Directors and members of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.

We wish to convey to you, to all members of RCMP E Division and Surrey RCMP,
and to the family and friends of Constable Adrian Oliver our deepest sympathies at this
untimely and tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with those gathered to mourn.
We join you in recognizing the supreme sacrifice of a young officer whose dreams and
achievements have been cut short in the line of duty.

Such an event causes all of us to reflect upon the risks inherent in this profession and to
acknowledge the dedication to public safety that motivates fine young citizens to take
on the responsibilities of a sworn police officer. Constable Oliver made this
commitment, serving and protecting his community in the most direct way. For that
dedication and commitment, we are truly thankful. May he rest in peace.

Yours sincerely,

Chief Jim Chu
Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police

To the Oliver family, friends, and colleagues;

I'm a retired member in B.C. I just wanted to pass on the lyrics of this song in the hopes that it may offer you some comfort.

I have two sons who are the same age as Adrian.
I'm so sorry for your loss.

I heard this latest song by Terry Kelly on Remembrance Day.

People forget that police officers, firemen, and paramedics face many of the same catastrophic events that soldiers do, only for many of us we see more over a prolonged period of time.
So these lyrics seem to hit a chord;

Our deepest condolences,
Bill Jost & Family
Maple Ridge, B.C.

There are certainly no words that I could say that would bring you the comfort that you need right now, dealing with such a tragic loss. I had never met Adrian, but knowing the caliber of members in our organization, I am certain that his loss will be deeply felt by both his family and his co-workers.
Please accept my deepest sympathy.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Cathie Sands

Thank you for bringing up a son who offered of his own free will to protect myself and my family,

taking his own life in his hands every day to serve us.

Sgt Heath Newton

Delta Police Department

My Condolences…

I am a Delta Police Department member who drove by the scene on my way to work not long after the incident occurred and heard on the radio as I passed by that there was a serious incident involving a police vehicle and a large truck. I remember hoping that all involved were ok, especially the member who would have obviously been in the smaller vehicle. As I continued on my way to work I didn’t think I would hear much more about the incident, but as the morning went on it became evident that the incident was extremely serious and the word fatality was being used in some of the reports. When the news was confirmed that a member of the RCMP had passed in the accident I was deeply sorrowed and thought of Cst. Adrian Oliver several times throughout the day. I would like to pass on my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Cst. Adrian Oliver and know that he will be dearly missed…

Tim Cardinal

He will never know how much his contribution was appreciated and I feel saddened by his loss.

Words can never bring back a loved one but we can only focus on all the pleasure, happiness and love we shared as a family and to remember and always remember what a great gift Adrian was not only to his family but to the citizens he served so proudly.


Sheryl Armstrong
Asst/Comm (ret'd)Hap Armstrong

It is such a tragedy for us as a community to lose someone so young and brave. Someone who was committed to the safety and service of our country as a whole, and our community specifically. But to lose this young man as a member of your family, must be devastating. We as a country are filled with sadness today for your loss, for our loss. Please accept our sincerest and deepest condolences. Also accept our most heartfelt gratitude for the dedication this young constable and your family have given to us all. Rest in Peace Cst. Oliver, God speed.

The Berg Family

It is a sad day in policing when we lose one of our own. It is gratifying to know that within policing there exists a large police family. It extends beyond borders, even continents; it overcomes professional enmities and politics; it connects everyone who wears a badge in a united brother/sisterhood that transcends all divisive issues to create a universal collective. That collective is strongest in times of extreme trial. We will deal with this loss with strength, nobility and honor as demanded by our profession.

We weep for the loss of our brother. Our prayers encompass his family. Our sense of duty makes us carry on.

Lilly Kaetler
Abbotsford, B.C.

Dear Olivers

You are no strangers to this part of life that we face on daily basis as RCMP. Ben, I can still see the look on your mom's face as she patiently sat in the car with you and your brothers back in the early 90s when your family vacation was briefly suspended as your dad pulled over on the TC Hwy near Memramcook to assist me with a serious collision; Joe, your comments were something like "the misses understands" as you crawled into the back seat of the wreck to support and comfort the poor trapped soul. This modelling of service is no doubt what the LMD experienced when two more Olivers arrived to fulfill their duties. Canadians do not necessarilly appreciate our careers, but I believe that the majority still admire and respect us for the service, sacrifices and lifestyle that we have chosen when we take our oath.

As as second gen I truly understand that there are no words for what Force families go through at these times, but we all share in the loss of Adrian.

Officer Adrian lost his life very close to where I live and on the very auspicious day of Diwali in my culture. I drove past the site that evening & my heart was heavy knowing while I was able to celebrate with my family that evening , there was another family suffering from a great loss. This morning I saw his friends and family huddled together paying their respects and although I did not know Officer Oliver I so badly wanted to join them and somehow take away their pain. I will keep him and everyone coping with the loss of such a brave young man in my prayers.

May his soul be at peace.

Navi Gill

To the Oliver family;

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your son, and brother, Adrian. He was a fine young man whose passing will be felt by all of us.

Thank you,

When I lost my son 2 years ago, the words from the pastor have stayed with me forever. He said, "We know some day we will lose our parents, It is painful and we bury them in the ground. When we lose a partner, it is painful. But we can find love again. But when we bury our child, there is nothing more devastating and we bury them in our chest, right beside our heart forever." Truer words were never spoken. But in honour of our children, we live on. My prayers are with you and your family as you go through this very difficult loss of your precious son.


Dear Oliver family,

Our deep condolences on the unfortunate loss of the life of Cst. Adrian Oliver, after knowing about your family and what your family has been doing to provide great services to the society and provide comforts to life of others. We salute you all.

No words or gesture can provide any comfort for such a loss of a great soul and human being. We hope and pray that somehow your family, friends and close ones will get the courage and peace in knowing that hopefully Adrian rests in peace and he had given his life in the line of duty; providing great services and protecting others.

Rest in peace Adrian, God bless the great departed soul.

Yours truly,

Yash Chawla family

Earlier in September during a trip in BC I visited a friend that is a member on C watch and I participated in a few ride along. During those ride along I got to meet Adrian and get to know him a little. During those nights Adrian talked about his time spent in Woodstock, NB and the people he knew here. The two nights that I was there I’ve had the honour of meeting Adrian, and now this only allows me to testify of how much of great man and member he was. When Adrian became an RCMP officer I would say that he answered his calling, you could see the love he had for the force and that he enjoyed his job… to him it was a passion and he was not afraid to share it! During those nights he talked about his family and his girlfriend, again you could see how much he cared for them.

When I heard the news my heart sank, I immediately felt the pain of this lost… To his Brothers and Sisters in the RMCP, I wish to offer you my deepest sympathy, it is never easy to lose a member of our extended family. To his Brothers and Sisters of C watch, I’ve seen firsthand the camaraderie and care you have for one another, I am so sorry for this lost, please stay strong and stay together. To his family, words can’t express the sadness and pain that I feel for all of you today, Adrian was a great guy, you will miss him and so will the rest of us. My deepest sympathy to all of you, may you have the courage to deal with this difficult time, and be proud of him.

Constable Adrian Oliver you served your country well, but I guess God needed a real life hero and called for you. May you rest in Peace Brother. Please watch over your Family, Brothers and Sisters of the Force, give them the courage to carry-on.

Border Services Officer 

To the family of Cst. Oliver,
I sincerely send thoughts and prayer to the family during this time. I work as a dispatcher for the RCMP in Nova Scotia and was saddened to hear of his death.. truly, although I never met Cst Oliver, it feels as if a part of the family has passed. The RCMP does feel like a family and members from the east coast to the west coast have been affected by his death.
Praying for you all.

Leah Swan

 My prayers are with at this time. Definitely to young to go and just fairly new in a great career. To dad & brother this hits twice. Once as a family member and twice as a fellow RCMP officer. Please, you all keep yourselves well. God's love be with you.

Geoff Johannessen

To the Oliver family and the RCMP:

On behalf of my Law Enforcement Studies class, Cohort 9, at the Justice Institute of British Columbia, I would like to express my condolences to you on the loss of your son, brother, friend, and colleague.

This is an ill-timed and upsetting loss for everyone. Being a resident of the City of Surrey, and a potential applicant, this serves as a reminder to me and my classmates here at JIBC the dangers of policing and the amount of dedication one must have for this career. Cst. Oliver showed dedication, courage, and affection to his career and his community, and for that, we thank you good sir.

This is truly a sad day for the Surrey RCMP, and the whole law enforcement family...

Rest In Peace Cst. Adrian Oliver.

I have and had several family and friends in the RCMP Forces and everytime I hear of an officer injured and/or killed my heart skips a beat and I always try to find out who it is.

Really sad, I send my condolences, Thanks for your service young man.

I have had the honor and the privilege to have been in Adrian’s troop at Depot. He was always the life of the party and made everyone laugh. I will always remember watching Adrian accept his badge from his father and brother, and seeing the pride and love the family shared.


Adrian will be missed by many, our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Once again the loss of a colleague whilst serving their community is felt far and wide.
I am a serving officer in the UK with Surrey Police based in Guildford and during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, I was in BC for a month and fortunate enough to meet with some of the RCMP officers in Surrey Detachment and a friend who is now a Constable in Alberta.

My thoughts and prayers are today with the family, friends and colleagues of Adrian Oliver.
May he truly rest in peace and may God bless and comfort you all at this difficult time.
