A funeral for Surrey RCMP Const. Adrian Oliver will be held Tuesday, Nov. 20 at the Langley Events Centre at 1 p.m.

Oliver, 28, was killed on Nov. 13, when he was involved in a crash with a semi-truck trailer at an intersection in Surrey. He was at the end of his night shift and was driving in an unmarked police car back to the detachment.

The RCMP and Oliver's famly have received an outpouring of support and condolences from the public since the young Constable was killed.

Members of the public are invited to attend his funeral, said RCMP. However, seating priority will be given to Oliver’s family, friends, colleagues and those attending in uniform. Police and emergency personnel will be in full attendance and a march will take place before the funeral. The Langley Events Centre, 7888 200 Street, has seating for more than 5,500 people.
