Constable Harvinder Singh Dhami, known to everyone as "Harvey", of the Strathcona County detachment was killed in the line of duty this morning at approximately 2:00 a.m.
Cst. Dhami was involved in a motor vehicle accident while responding to assist members with a noise complaint. While en route to the call, his vehicle struck a large concrete barrier or abutment.
Despite efforts of the emergency personnel and civilians, Harvey succumbed to his injuries.
Cst. Dhami graduated Depot in 2019 and was posted in Strathcona Municipal detachment. Right from the time he started at Depot, Harvey was known as someone who was mature with a strong sense of responsibility. He was hard working, dependable and so well liked by everyone around him. This was so evident this morning in talking with members and staff of his watch and detachment.
Cst. Dhami took great pride in wearing the uniform and we were very proud to have him on our team.
Harvey is survived by his wife Ravinder and her family, his mother, his sister and his brother.
Losing a member of our police service and a member of the community is incredibly difficult. We are very appreciative of the support that has been extended to the family, our staff and the community.
