Officer remembered

letter to the editor

Cpl. Dave Murphy, who passed away last week, was a great man, a great father and a fine police officer serving with Summerside Police Services.

After graduating from the Atlantic Police Academy, he joined Summerside Police Services. For a number of years prior to my retirement in 2011, I was Dave's supervisor. He was well respected by all municipal police services, RCMP and all other enforcement agencies.

He worked in drug enforcement, tactical team, major crime and general police duties, most recently a corporal in charge of a team. I identify Dave, as a well liked police officer by the community he served. He was a down to earth guy and would go above and beyond to help anyone. Summerside Police Services has suffered a great loss with Dave's passing. He will be greatly missed by anyone who knew him.
