Senior Constable John Paul Flagg
OPP officers were involved with a fleeing suspect vehicle on March Road, near Golden Line Road in Mississippi Mills Township. A collision occurred involving a stolen jeep, a pick-up truck and an OPP Motorcycle Unit. As a result of this collision, 54-year-old Senior Constable John Paul Flagg succumbed to his injuries in Almonte Hospital.
Senior Constable Flagg began his career in July 1968 as a cadet. More recently he was posted to the Kingston Detachment and for the past few years he has worked with the Eastern Region R.I.D.E Unit, stationed out of Quinte.
"John was an extremely dedicated police officer with a passion for traffic safety," said OPP Commissioner Gwen Boniface. "He was very personable and always the gentleman. Once again, we grieve the loss of another fellow officer."
