A 31-year veteran with York Regional Police has died after being involved in a motorcycle collision with his wife on Friday while he was off-duty in southern Ontario.
Chief Jim MacSween said Sgt. Craig Heatley died of the injuries he received during a collision in Meaford, Ont. MacSween said Heatley’s wife is in serious but stable condition.
“This is a devastating and unexpected loss for all of Craig’s family, friends and platoon mates,” MacSween tweeted. “Craig was a well-respected 31-year veteran, who worked in Criminal investigations, Academics, Auto recovery and most recently in #4 District Uniform Patrol.”
Heatley was described as a dear friend who will be remembered for his “jovial personality, sense of humour and passion for policing,” said MacSween.
