Winnipeg police lined Portage Avenue with cruiser cars outside of the Manitoba RCMP headquarters Saturday in a display of solidarity after RCMP Const. Allan Poapst was killed in a two-vehicle crash Friday evening.

But it wasn’t just Winnipeg police showing support for the colleagues and loved ones of the 49-year-old father of three who died just five days shy of completing 13 years of duty.

Manitoba institutions spoke out, offering condolences for the RCMP and Poapst’s family. Police departments and unions nationwide offered solidarity to Manitoba RCMP.

“It hits everyone hard who’s part of this profession,” said Winnipeg Police Service Const. Rob Carver, noting he’s seen support from police across the continent.

“We want to make sure that everybody there and RCMP officers, not only in Manitoba but across the country, know that our hearts go out to them. That could be one of our officers next time — they would do the same thing.”
