New RCMP detachment commander coming to Hope

Staff Sgt. Bruce Anderson takes over position July 7

Staff Sgt. Bruce Anderson is taking over as the new leader of Hope and Boston Bar RCMP on July 7.

Former Staff Sgt. Suki Manj made his last official appearance in Hope on Canada Day before he relocates to Llyodminster, Alberta with his family.

Upon transfer, he will be promoted to inspector and assume the role of inspector in charge.

Anderson brings a wealth of experience to his new position in Hope, coming from Surrey where he’s currently working with operational concerns as well as long-term policing initiatives for the Surrey RCMP.

Anderson is originally from Red Deer, Alberta and has 33 years of service with the police force. He  has worked in Golden, Prince George, commercial crimes in headquarters, and Langley.

“I have experienced small detachment and large detachment policing and enjoy the small community policing style,” said Anderson.

“I am looking forward to working in Hope and working closely with the community to address any concerns that may arise.”
