News release from South Simcoe Police
The family of Police Constable Devon Northrup has established a memorial fund in loving memory of Devon to honour his service and the ultimate sacrifice he made in the line of duty on October 11, 2022.
Constable Northrup, 33, was a beloved spouse, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend to many. He was a cherished member of the South Simcoe Police Service who accomplished so much during his six years as an officer through his work in specialized units and commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. One of Devon’s passions was the annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Run also known as the “Run to Remember.” Devon took on the role of team captain for the South Simcoe run team and was an annual participant in the run from Toronto to Ottawa which honours officers who gave their lives protecting their communities. Tragically, Devon will now be recognized among those fallen heroes.
To continue Devon’s legacy of helping others, proceeds from the Devon Northrup Memorial Fund will benefit causes close to Devon’s heart. The fund has been set up through the local Innisfil Community Foundation.
