An Officer with Sarnia Police Service’s Emergency Response Team stands guard during the Remembrance Day services at the downtown Sarnia Cenotaph, on November 11, 2014. “We decided to take a proactive approach this year in the interest of safety and security,” said Sarnia Police Service’s Media Officer, Constable Les Jones. The heightened security presence was a direct result of the recent attacks against military servicemen in Quebec and Ottawa, Constable Jones explained. In October, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was killed in a hit-and-run attack in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. Days later, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed while on sentry duty in Ottawa.
