We are mourning with the Prince William County Police Department in Virginia after the loss of a Sister. Officer Ashley Guindon was shot and killed while responding to a reported 'verbal assault' complaint. The suspect had killed his wife and then ambushed Officers as they approached. Officer Guindon's FTO and a third Officer were also shot during the incident. A suspect has been taken into custody.
Officer Guindon had only been sworn in a day ago as an Officer for the Prince William County Police Department. It was her first day on patrol with her FTO. She is survived by her family.
We create these humble memorials as a small token of our appreciation for the dedication to service our Brothers and Sisters have while protecting the citizens of the communities they serve. We also light blue lights to honor the memory of these fallen Officers as a symbol of hope and gratitude. We will shine our blue lights across America tonight for Officer Guindon. May she follow the blue glow home.
Officer Guindon is the 13th Officer honored by Blue Line Across America to fall in the line of duty during 2016. She is the 1st Officer lost this year from the State of Virginia.
