EDMONTON – It starts with a close up shot of one of the thousands of blue ribbons that lined the streets of Edmonton following Const. Daniel Woodall’s death and ends with a message of thanks to Edmontonians.
The Edmonton Police Service released a video Tuesday in memory of 35-year-old Woodall.
With Amazing Grace playing on the bagpipes, the video showcases the way Edmontonians have paid tribute to Woodall in the days since his tragic death. It also includes scenes from Woodall’s regimental funeral last week, which was attended by thousands of uniformed officers and members of the public.
The memorial video, titled ‘In memory of Constable Daniel Woodall, EPS thanks you,’ ends by showing a picture of Woodall with the words “Thank you, Edmonton for your support” written across the screen.
Woodall was fatally shot outside a home in the city’s west end on Monday, June 8. He was one of several officers who had arrived at the Ormsby Place home to execute an arrest warrant. Sgt. Jason Harley, a 38-year-old southwest division patrol member, was injured in the arrest.
Woodall is the first Edmonton Police Service officer killed in the line of duty in 25 years.
