TORONTO — Police officers from across the country will commemorate a fallen Toronto police officer at a funeral this afternoon that will include tributes from dignitaries and eulogies to his wife and daughter.

A service celebrating the life of Const. Andrew Hong will be held at 12:00 p.m. at the Toronto Congress Center and is expected to be attended by Hong’s family, guests, officers, Toronto Police Service colleagues and other police and emergency services personnel from many other jurisdictions.

It will include eulogies from Hong’s wife Jenny and daughter Mia, as well as tributes from Ontario Premier Doug Ford, Toronto Mayor John Tory, Toronto Police Commissioner James Ramer and Toronto Police Association President Jon Reid.

Another person was injured in the Mississauga shooting, and police say the same suspect then shot three people at a body shop in Milton, Ontario, killing two and wounding one, before being shot by police in Hamilton.

Hong, 48, was a 22-year veteran of the force and a traffic services officer who worked with a highly specialized motorcycle unit that provides security escorts to dignitaries such as prime ministers and presidents.

The funeral is not public but can be followed via an online live stream on the Toronto Police Service’s YouTube channel or on local television stations.
