ALBERTA/630 CHED - Flags are at half mast outsiude Edmonton Police headquarters and district stations today after the off duty death of a Constable last night.
The Constable, identified as 36-year-old Darryl Vandenberg, was driving north on Highway 21 near Hay Lakes when his vehicle and a southbound pick-up collided head on. It was around 7:30 last night and weather and road conditions do not appear to be factors.

No one else suffered serious injuries. Constable Darryl Vandenberg joined the Edmonton Police Srervice about a year ago and was assigned to southeast division. He is survived by a wife and three children.

You obviously knew him, so I'm sorry for the loss. I am sure it is a huge blow to the entire service.

A member of the Edmonton Police Service died following a two-vehicle collision about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Const. Darryl Vandenberg, 36, was off-duty and traveling north on Highway 21 just south of Hay Lakes, 53 km southeast of Edmonton, when he was involved in a collision with a south-bound pickup truck. Camrose RCMP are investigating the crash.

Const. Vandenberg served with the EPS for just over one year patrolling South East Division. He is survived by his wife, two sons and a daughter.

“The EPS family is truly saddened by the loss of such a fine officer,” says deputy chief Lipinski. “Members will continue to work with the Vandenberg family to support them through this difficult time.”

A memorial service is expected, but at this time, no date has been set.

I just returned from the memorial service and was grtified to see that Cst Vandenberg had so many friends and loved ones, both civilian and on the job.

The church was overfull, with members standing lining the walls and an overflow crowd in the church auditorium next door.

Darryl's father is an Edmonton Police veteran, and his brother is a constable in Vancouver.

Rest in peace Darryl, we've got the watch.
