Jonathan Bergen Death – “No police officer wakes up, dons the uniform, and wants to be forced to make the hardest choice we’ll ever have to make as a police officer,” the adage goes. After an officer-involved shooting on Monday night in the 400 block of South Industrial Drive, it was said by Prince Albert Police Chief Jonathan Bergen. According to a police news release, there was a confrontation with a male and a gunshot was heard. The male was brought to the hospital and later declared dead.
Statement from Bergen
The investigation into the incident has been taken up by the Saskatchewan Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT). “We recognize there will be many questions, and a family and a community are in mourning,” reads a statement from Bergen. We are unable to speak about specifics of the independent investigation at this time. When this occurred, a relief shift was added to handle the midnight front-line calls for service. The internal wellness team, the chaplain, and elders are just a few of the resources available to members. A shooting involving an officer is a horrible and distressing incident, according to Bergen.

Jacob Arellano, a Dallas police officer, was killed last week after a drunk driver struck his SUV in the wrong direction, according to the police, and his family, friends, and coworkers gathered on Wednesday to mourn his passing. Exactly one week had passed since Arellano passed away in Methodist Hospital following the head-on collision in southwest Dallas when the service was held at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Richardson on a cold morning. When Arellano was working, Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia described him as a “presence” on the site and commended him for his efforts.
Garcia added, “He would never shy away from running down DWI’s, even if it kept him after shift,” “He fought to remove drunk drivers from the roadways in order to save lives. He made efforts to avoid the same kind of collision that claimed his life.” Garcia claimed Arellano have a talent. When Jacob was on a call, according to his coworkers, there was no need for concern, Garcia said. He took the time to listen, show respect, resolve issues, and provide advice. Just before midnight, Arellano, 25, was on her way to work on Spur 408 near Kiest Boulevard when Mayra Rebollar, 31, allegedly struck the officer’s car from the opposite direction.
According to authorities, he was forced into the right lane where he was hit by an approaching tractor trailer, rolled several times, and finally came to rest on the shoulder. He was taken to Methodist in a serious condition and later died there at 9:40 on Wednesday morning. Rebollar, who was also admitted to the hospital, was subsequently detained and accused with intoxicated manslaughter. The Dallas City Council meeting on Wednesday was adjourned for more than two hours so that the mayor and council members could attend the funeral.
Mayor Eric Johnson commended the cops for their dedication to the city in a direct address to them. Johnson said, “We recognize what we’re asking of all of you, so we wanted to be here to say thank you to your family, and to Jacob. Joshua Arellano, the identical twin of Arellano and a fellow Dallas police officer, described his brother as a good man. He remarked, “With a broad smile on his face, my brother was always self-committed and passionate to all he achieved in life. Arellano’s fiance Alyssa Rosales and their child Nolan Jacob Arellano are left behind.
