SURREY — Carol Bradley is the Surrey RCMP ’s first female superintendent.

Bradley is the detachment’s new operations support officer and is one of 26 female superintendents in the RCMP across the country.

Bradley said she decided to become a police officer in 1984 after working as a summer student constable with the RCMP.

“I had never considered joining the RCMP – it was still considered a non-traditional career for women back then – but my experience working with the RCMP that summer was so positive that I decided to join,” she said.

Two years later, she became a regular member constable.

Over her 29 years of service, Bradley has served in federal, protective, general duty and traffic roles in four provinces.

She also worked at the RCMP depot in Regina for 15 years where she held positions in cast training, recruiting and staffing.

A B.C. native, Bradley grew up in Victoria and has lived in Surrey for the past two years.

Chief Superintendent Bill Fordy said he’s pleased to welcome her.

“Bradley has extensive experience in training and staffing and excellent interpersonal skills, all of which will be a significant asset to this detachment as we continue to welcome more police officers to Surrey,” Fordy said.

Bradley is responsible for oversight of member services, the professional standards unit, training, media, detachment services, strategic operations, special events/emergency planning and integrated regional services.
