Edmonton Police Reveal $404,318 Funeral Cost for Fallen Constables in Emotional Ceremony


Earlier this year, the Edmonton Police Service held a regimental funeral for fallen comrades, Constables Travis Jordan and Brett Ryan. The somber event took place on March 27, in honour of the officers who tragically lost their lives on March 16 while responding to a domestic dispute at an Inglewood apartment building. Now, the police service has revealed a thorough cost breakdown for this poignant ceremony.

Potential risks were not enough to deter Jordan and Ryan from performing their duty, a call which ultimately led them into the lethal grip of a family feud. The ensuing chaos saw a 16-year-old resident of the apartment shooting both the constables and his mother before turning the gun on himself.
