Cpl. James Mason is a new voice of the Surrey RCMP.

This week, the detachment’s media unit introduced Mason as its newest media relations offficer.

Mason is now working alongside Sgt. Tammy Lobb and Cpl. Sarbjit Sangha in the office on 144 Street, north of Highway 10.

According to a biography from the Mounties, Mason has served with the RCMP in B.C. for more than a decade, beginning with his initial posting in Mission in 2011.

During his service with Mission RCMP, Mason took on many different roles including High Risk Youth Co-ordinator, First Nations Liaison Officer, Rural Policing Officer and Media Relations Officer, as well as working in General Duty. He also spent time working General Duty in Agassiz before coming to the Surrey RCMP in 2020 with a promotion to Road Supervisor.

“I’m looking forward to being able to connect with the people of Surrey in a new way through this Media Relations position,” Mason said in a news release posted on the detachment’s website.

“I count myself fortunate to be of service to the officers engaged in this community, as I promote their great work in a city that so many call home.”
