When I received word I was being commissioned as an Officer to the Surrey RCMP, I was thrilled, says Insp. LeClair.
The Surrey RCMP has an excellent reputation throughout the policing community and a strong partnership with the City of Surrey. I look forward to talking to residents and business owners at local community events and continuing some of the great community initiatives that have been developed.
