A Fallen Comrade

During my time with the West Grey Police, we suffered the loss of one of our own officers to an off-duty traffic collision.  This is a notice I submitted to the police magazine, “Blue Line:”

It is with great sadness that the West Grey Police Service announces the death of Auxiliary Constable Brad Campbell, 39, a dedicated 3 year veteran of the West Grey Police Service Auxiliary Unit.
 
 
Auxiliary Constable Campbell sustained serious injuries as a result of an off-duty traffic collision on Highway 6, south of the Town of Durham, on 27 December 2006. He succumbed to his injuries a month later on 22 January, never having regained consciousness. Injured in the collision were Brad’s wife Karen and youngest daughter Erin. Brad also leaves behind his daughter Ainsley and his son McLeod.

Auxiliary Constable Campbell joined the West Grey Police Service, based out of the Town of Durham, in September 2003. He previously served as an Auxiliary Constable with the Harriston Police Service from September 1998 until the service disbanded in September 1999.

A 21 year veteran of the bakery industry, Brad and his wife Karen have owned and operated the Harrison Bakery in the Town of Harriston since 1996.

Although he was not a sworn member of the service, the members of the West Grey Police Service feel that we have truly lost a brother officer. God bless you Brad and rest in peace. Your service to the community will not be forgotten.
