After four-and-a-half years in Terrace, and the last two years in charge of the RCMP detachment, Inspector Syd Lecky will be heading south.
Lecky has been chosen as the new Officer in Charge of the Kamloops RCMP detachment and will be promoted to the rank of Superintendent.
Lecky joined the RCMP in 1996 and has had postings in Kelowna, Gold River, and Terrace, followed by a stint in Prince George as an Advisory Non-Commissioned Officer in charge of the Aboriginal Policing Program throughout the North. After three years as the Mackenzie RCMP Detachment Commander, he returned to Terrace in 2013 and was later promoted to Inspector in March, 2016.
I am excited to work with City of Kamloops, residents, businesses and those agencies working with marginalized persons to enhance and champion initiatives that will keep our community safe, said Insp. Syd Lecky in a news release.
As a proud member of the Passamaquoddy Nation I also look forward to working with the Shuswap Nation served by the Kamloops Detachment including Skeetchestn, Tk’emlúps and the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band.
Lecky says the move offers him an opportunity to be closer to his two oldest children who attend a nearby university.
