It is with great sadness that we must embark on another WearRed campaign, we in the RCMP family would like to say how truly grateful we are for the outpouring of love and support with our previous WearRed campaigns in June of 2014 and January, 2015. Red was worn across our great nation and worldwide. Our officers and their families felt and appreciated your love and support. We thank-you from the bottom of our hearts for making such tragic times in our lives a little less lonely.

The Spouses of the RCMP have created an event to show their support for fallen West Shore, RCMP Officer, Sarah Beckett.
