(HURON COUNTY, ON) Huron County Road 12 is now officially dedicated as "Police Memorial Highway". 

The dedication ceremony was held Aug. 1 at the Huron County council chamber in Goderich. 

The county and the OPP take great pride in honouring three fallen police officers who all served throughout the county. Provincial constables Bruce Crew, David Mounsey and Vu Pham all paid the ultimate sacrifice and were killed in the line of duty.

OPP commissioner Chris Lewis, chief superintendent John Cain, and county warden Bernie MacLellan paid tribute to the officers with heartfelt remarks, reminding those in attendance that the fallen officers will never be forgotten. Family members of all the fallen officers were also present to participate in the official unveiling ceremony.

Police Memorial Highway will have a total of eight highly-visible signs erected for both southbound and northbound traffic that will serve as an everlasting memory of the sacrifices made by the fallen officers who served the county.

"I would like to offer my congratulations and thanks to the members of Huron County council for their strong support for the OPP and for taking the lead role in making this project a reality," said Huron OPP staff sergeant Shawn Johnson. "This will ensure Bruce, Dave and Vu will never be forgotten."
