Funeral services will be Wednesday for the Slidell Police Officer who died following a crash.

Slidell Police Officer Jason Seals, a member of the department’s motorcycle unit, was injured in September as he participated in a funeral escort. Police said he struck a vehicle that unexpectedly pulled in front of him.

Funeral services, with full honors, will be held at the Northshore Harbor Center (100 Harbor Center Boulevard, Slidell, Louisiana) on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, at 12:00 noon.

Visitation at the Northshore Harbor Center will begin at 9:00 a.m., until funeral time. A police procession will follow the funeral services. Interment in the Forest Lawn Cemetery (1751 Gause Boulevard West, Slidell, Louisiana) will begin after the police procession arrives.

The route of the funeral procession is still being finalized, and will be released sometime tomorrow. For updates, follow the department’s Facebook page here.
