THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay is getting set to remember and honour Constable Joe Prevett:
Thunder Bay Police Service share;
On Thursday May 15th, members of the Thunder Bay Police Service will be joined by their fellow law enforcement officers, emergency services personnel, City Council members and the Thunder Bay Police Services Board to pay their respects to Constable Joseph Prevett.
There will be a march of officers and civilian members of various agencies from the old court house at 1805 Arthur Street commencing just after 10:00 a.m. The march will travel east on Arthur Street to South Syndicate Avenue where it will proceed north to Donald Street. The march then turns west on Donald Street to St. Patrick’s Cathedral at South Archibald Street.
The Funeral Mass is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. There will be limited public access to the Funeral Mass since we are making every effort to accommodate all of the Peace Officers, civilian members and emergency responders who will be attending from Thunder Bay and other locations.
A live streaming video feed will be available through Trinity United Church’s website www.trinityuc.org
The public who wish to show their respect are encouraged to attend anywhere along the parade route.
• Arthur Street will be closed for the march (approximately 30 minutes) just east of Kingsway to South Syndicate)
• Parking in the vicinity of St. Patrick’s Cathedral will be restricted from 8:00 a.m. till after 1:00 p.m. on Thursday May 15th
