OPP working with officers to help deal with the on-duty death of one of their own.

The Orillia OPP detachment commander has issued comments regarding the death of David Herrington.

Inspector Pat Morris says it is difficult for the OPP to lose one of its members.

He says it is also difficult for the officers who are responding to the death of a police officer.

Detective-Constable Herrington was a 25-year veteran of the force and a member of the Physical Surveillance Unit.

He was found in a vehicle parked near the Royal Bank branch off Monarch Drive in Orillia last Thursday.

There is no word on the cause of death but investigators have ruled out foul play.

Morris says this is very tragic circumstance.

He says it has an impact on the officer's family and his fellow officers in the unit and detachment.

Morris says the OPP reflects on what has occurred.

He says what they try to do is what is best for the health and wellness of their officers and staff.
