GUELPH, Ont. – A public funeral will be held Thursday to honour Guelph Police Const. Jennifer Kovach, who died last week after her cruiser crashed into a bus.
A service will be held Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the Sleeman Centre at 50 Woolwich St. in Guelph, according to a Guelph Police Service statement.
“The Kovach family has generously agreed to a public funeral to celebrate and remember the life of Jennifer,” the statement said.
Guelph police Chief Blair Larkin is expected to announce more details of the service, Monday.
Kovach, 26, was responding to a call to assist another officer when she apparently lost control of her cruiser and hit a Guelph Transit bus on the morning of March 14.
She died in hospital.
