The RCMP’s Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment has chosen Inspector Deanne Burleigh as the new Officer in Charge.

“Inspector Burleigh comes with a wealth of experience and leadership skills which will make her a great Detachment Commander. We are excited to have her join our Lower Mainland management team,” said Lower Mainland District Commander Norm Lipinski in a press release.

Burleigh planned the RCMP response in Richmond during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Previously, she also worked with the Commercial Crime Section in Richmond and Montreal.

Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz, alongside mayors from Hope, Harrison Hot Springs, and Kent/Agassiz, participated in selection.

“I was pleased to hear the communities selected Inspector Deanne Burleigh. I have known her for a number of years and she has a common sense approach to policing and is a very open, caring individual,” said Superintendent Keith Robinson in the release.

Burleigh will take over as Detachment Commander in April, and will be promoted to Superintendent in the near future.
