Officers outgoing and incoming
On behalf of the Cranbrook RCMP members, staff and city, I would like to wish Cst. Hailey Pinfold and Cst. Michael Penton all the best as they transfer out of Cranbrook Detachment. Both officers arrived in Cranbrook in the summer of 2012 and made significant contributions to the detachment and City of Cranbrook. Their service to this area has been very much appreciated. Good luck Mike and Hailey!
I would also like to welcome three officers to Cranbrook Detachment:
Sgt. Chris Dodds comes to us from Whistler RCMP Detachment where he was responsible for running the Pemberton RCMP Sub Office. Chris joined us in early May and is our new Cranbrook Detachment Operations Support NCO.
Cpl. Mich Mercier joins us from Regina, Saskatchewan where his previous role was that of an instructor at the RCMP Depot. He arrived in Cranbrook near the end of May and is our new Watch Commander.
Cst. Colin Smilie who recently graduated from the RCMP Depot in Regina has just joined us in Cranbrook this month.
