On Sunday, October 7, 2012, the public is invited to the 6th Annual "Ride for Ron". This annual event will be held in remembrance of the life of HCSO Sgt. Ron Harrison.
On August 15th, 2007, Sergeant Ron Harrison had just finished a DUI checkpoint and was sitting in his patrol car near the intersection of Lumsden Road and Kings Avenue in Brandon, when a suspect approached his vehicle and fired into the car through the open passenger side window, striking Sergeant Harrison multiple times. Sgt Harrison later died at Brandon Regional Hospital.
