Insp. Mandip Mann promoted to rank of superintendent and will oversee all of the detachment's investigative sections.

The Surrey RCMP has announced the promotion of Insp. Mandip “Manny” Mann, senior investigator of the Major Crime Section, to the rank of superintendent in the position of Investigative Services Officer.

In this new role, Supt. Mann will oversee all of Surrey detachment’s investigative sections, including: drugs, major crime, property crime, vulnerable persons and the Special Projects Investigation Enforcement Section.

Mann has been with the RCMP for more than 24 years and has done all of his service in the Lower Mainland region, with nine years spent in Surrey. After beginning his career on Surrey general duty, he quickly gravitated towards investigative services with a position in the Surrey Drug Section. His next 15 years were spent in investigative roles with the E Division Undercover Unit, North Vancouver RCMP General Investigation Section, and over seven years with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT). He was also a member of the Emergency Response Team. In 2011 he returned to Surrey detachment as a team commander in the Major Crime Section, followed by a promotion to his most recent role of Senior Investigator of Major Crime.

Manny has a broad base of experience inclusive of working as an undercover police officer, homicide investigator, and manager of numerous major crime investigations. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in leading and managing complex police investigations,” says Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge, Chief Supt. Bill Fordy. “As the first RCMP superintendent in British Columbia of South Asian descent, he is well positioned to be an excellent role model for our youth and better connect the Surrey RCMP with Surrey’s significant South Asian community.”

“Ultimately, I joined the RCMP to help people and to put bad guys in jail – that’s still why I come to work every day,” says Mann. “I am honoured to take on this new role in investigative sServices. We have a fantastic team who are dedicated to solving crime and protecting our citizens, that I will very be proud to lead.”
