NEWTON – Sergeant Parm Prihar has been named the new commander for Surrey RCMP’s Newton District Office.
Prihar brings 21 years of policing experience to Newton, with an extensive background in patrol and serious crime.
"I am proud to be part of this community and confident that, with the public’s support, we can make Newton an even better place to live, work and play," said Prihar.
