In the wake of the death of Const. John Davidson this week, Abbotsford Police (APD) have set up a special email address for those who want to send their condolences.
Davidson was fatally shot while responding to reports of a stolen vehicle and of someone firing shots in the direction of the general public.
Now, in addition to a GoFundMe campaign, there is a new email address for the public to send their thoughts and condolences to.

Davidson had worked as a police officer for 24 years, beginning his law enforcement career in the UK in 1993, before being hired to the Abbotsford Police in 2006.
According to a release, he worked in the Patrol, Youth Squad and Traffic sections and had recently completed the Tour de Valley Cops for Cancer ride.
A 65-year-old Albertan man, Oscar Arfmann, was apprehended after the shooting and has since been charged with the first-degree murder of Davidson.
Speaking about Richardson’s death on Monday, APD Chief Bob Rich said Davidson is “my hero.”
