July 1, 2024

“Today’s sentencing of 29 years in prison for the defendant in the murder of Officer Donald Sahota provides the family and friends Don left behind the opportunity to start healing from what has been an excruciatingly painful 2 ½ years”, said Vancouver Police Chief Jeff Mori. “The Sahota family will remain in our prayers and the memory of Don Sahota and his contributions to the law enforcement profession, his community and the Vancouver Police Department will continue to live on”. 

As they begin to move forward from the grief of Don’s senseless death and the grueling pain of the trial, the Sahota family asks for continued privacy.
