A plaque commemorating fallen officer, Const. Roger Pierlet – killed in the line of duty in 1974 – was rededicated in a ceremony May 21 in Cloverdale.

The Cst. Roger Pierlet Overhead is a tribute to the Surrey RCMP officer who was shot and killed on 176 Street just south of Highway 10.

Twenty officers in Red Serge attended the ceremony, along with Surrey RCMP Assistant Commissioner Fraser MacRae, Mayor Dianne Watts, family members and veterans.
