A group of Abbotsford citizens wants the city to honour slain officer John Davidson by naming a street after him.

Petition started to name street after Const. John Davidson

Over 500 signatures collected urging city to change Automall Drive to John Davidson Way

A group of Abbotsford citizens are trying to get the City of Abbotsford to honour slain police officer Const. John Davidson in a unique way.

A petition has been circulating asking Abbotsford city council to change the name of Automall Drive to John Davidson Way.

The petition was started on Thursday night, and currently has 578 signatures collected.

Davidson was transported to the hospital on Monday afternoon, after suffering serious injuries during a shootout in the area of Mt. Lehman Road and Automall Drive in west Abbotsford. He was pronounced dead in hospital.

The Abbotsford Police Department is also encouraging the public to put blue ribbons out in Davidson’s memory.

The APD received a donation of rolls of blue ribbon earlier today, and do have extra ribbon available at the headquarters for the public to use.
