Stewart RCMP get new Commanding Officer
Stewart may not the largest detachment in the country, but it covers a fairly large bit of terrain along the Highway 37 corridor between Terrace and Atlin and as of last week, the Stewart Detachment of the RCMP have a new commanding officer.
Corporal Derek Rondeau took over duties in Stewart last month, transferring to the Northwest from previous duties in Prince George.
Among his year of policing is 12 years of experience in Northern British Columbia, as well as familiarity with living in a small town setting.
In an information release last week the RCMP made note of his enjoyment of snowmobiling, a passion that he will no doubt get to explore should Stewart have one of its legendary winters this year.
"I am excited to have the opportunity to transfer up to this amazing area of BC. I look forward in getting to know the community and its residents, plus the snow filled mountains with my sled and family"
The full backgrounder on his appointment can be reviewed here.
