It is with great sadness that we share the off-duty passing of YRP Staff Sergeant Craig Heatley.

This is a devastating and unexpected loss for all of Craig’s family, friends & and platoon mates.

Craig was a well-respected 31-year YRP veteran, who worked in Criminal Investigations, Academics, Auto Recovery and most recently in #4 District Uniform Patrol.

Craig was both a valued YRP member and dear friend with whom I’ve worked & played hockey. He will be remembered for his jovial personality, sense of humour & passion for policing.
