Park to honour slain cop

A community drive is underway to name a playground after a police officer killed when her cruiser was broadsided by a speeding pickup driven by a drunk driver.

West Shore RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett was killed in April 2016.

The West Shore Rotary Club is hoping to raise $250,000 for the playground, CTV News reports.

Beckett's husband, Brad Aschenbrenner, says Sarah and their two children played at a similar park not long before her death.

"We will be able to reconnect with those memories,” Aschenbrenner told CTV. “It’s making something positive out of some so negative."

​The City of Langford has promised land for the playground, which could open as soon as late August.
