SURREY — Superintendent Marc Landry is Surrey RCMP’s new operations officer.
The former Canadian Forces soldier will oversee all of the detachment’s operations including the operations review unit, operational communication centre, the cell block and general duty.
Hailing from Montreal, Landry served with the infantry for six years prior to joining the RCMP 28 years ago.
His most recent post before taking on his new duties was operational support officer for the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, responsible for the uniform enforcement teams, surveillance teams and covert asset support team.
“Surrey has a long tradition for being progressive and taking innovative approaches to policing and this was certainly a draw for me in coming here,” Landry said of his new job. “I look forward to helping to build a stronger Surrey detachment and addressing the public safety concerns of this great community with the women and men of Surrey detachment.”
Landry has served in 11 detachments in B.C. and New Brunswick.
Chief Supt. Bill Fordy said his “extensive experience in operational policing in many different environments will be a significant asset as we continue to expand our operations.”
