PARKLAND, FL- The funeral for Coral Springs Police Officer Robert "Bob" Behan will be held Thursday morning, October 31st, at the Marriott Hotel in Heron Bay. Behan had been with the police force for four decades and was beloved by his community.
The funeral proceedings at the Heron Bay Marriott will include a 21-gun salute and a helicopter flyover beginning at 10:30 a.m. Parklanders are being informed of the proceedings in advance as there is a chance the salute and helicopter may be audible to the students at Westglades and Stoneman Douglas and Heron Heights schools. Parents are advised to share the situation with their children to avoid an unnecessary surprise for the students and staff. Traffic delays are also expected around the hotel and on Coral Ridge Drive.
