Commissioner Grant Stevens says police are working with Superintendent Shanahan’s family to ensure their wishes are honoured in how they would like the 55-year-old remembered.
“She was a valued member of the police family,” Mr Stevens said.
The mother-of-two joined the force in 1981 and was appointed the inaugural officer in charge of its family and domestic violence branch.
She died in a three-car collision at Urrbrae on April 25, along with 53-year-old Tania McNeill, the driver of a second car.
The 20-year-old driver of the third car has been charged over the crash.
