The Prince George RCMP detachment has a new officer in charge.
On Wednesday July 24, Inspector Shaun Wright was promoted to the rank of Superintendent as the new officer in charge of the City of Prince George Municipal Detachment. The City of Prince George was an integral part of the interviewing of candidates and selection of the new officer in charge.
The previous officer in charge, Superintendent Warren Brown was transferred to the North District RCMP (provincial) and is currently the Acting District Commander for Northern BC.
Superintendent Wright has been the Operations Officer at Prince George Detachment since late 2016. He has 23 years of service with the RCMP, with the majority being in the Lower Mainland.
His first post with the RCMP was to the City of Surrey, where he gained experience in various units within the detachment, including Frontline Policing, the Gang Enforcement Team and the General Investigations Section. He was then posted to Mission Detachment as the Operations Support NCO and then to BC RCMP Headquarters (E Division) in the Professional Responsibility Unit, before his transfer to Prince George.
“The last couple of years working in Prince George has been very rewarding, said Wright. “I am proud of the excellent work that is presently being done by the men and women who work at the Prince George city detachment and look forward to further improving public safety and making Prince George an even greater community to live in.”
Wright and his wife are well settled in Prince George and are looking forward to continuing to build their lives in the community.
