Visitation takes place on Sunday at Kane-Jerrett Funeral Home (8088 Yonge Street in Thornhill) from 6 to 9 p.m., in which the public is invited to attend.

A livestream of the funeral will also be available on local news stations or Toronto Police Service’s YouTube channel.

The ceremony will also be broadcast on a screen outside BMO Field for police members who aren’t able to be inside because of COVID protocols.

Northrup, a 31-year veteran with Toronto Police, was killed on July 2, after being struck by a vehicle after he and his partner responded to a stabbing in the parking garage of City Hall.

“Jeff was an exemplary officer,” said Supt. Greg Cole, who is the 52 Division Unit Commander.

“He came to work with a smile on his face. He was just someone who led and was a consummate professional.”

Cole added that 52 Division members are grieving.

“His death has hit the Division very hard and our officers are doing the best they can to do what needs to be done,” he said. “We have a lot of services in place to help them and we are also taking care of the needs of Jeff’s family which is very important now.”

Northrup is survived by his mother, wife and three children.
