Removal of Tributes and Memorials
As the regimental funeral service has concluded, we now begin a new stage of grief and healing. In support of the Edmonton Police Service’s protocols, over the coming days the City of Edmonton will begin to take down public signs of tribute and memorial.
Taking these items down in a respectful way, at the appropriate time, is an important way to show our respect. The City will be completing the following actions:
- On Tuesday March 28, The City of Edmonton will remove blue ribbons from fleet vehicles; and
- On Wednesday March 29, City crews will begin removing memorials on public property
Crews will be working with the utmost care and attention, and will provide gifts and cards to the Edmonton Police Service. Flowers will be gathered and composted and any other materials will be recycled, if possible.
