Top cop new president

Penticton’s top cop is the new president of the BC Association of Chiefs of Police.

Superintendent of the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen Regional RCMP detachment, Ted De Jager, was announced as the appointed president on Feb. 11.

De Jager was elected at the recent quarterly meeting of the organization.

The BCACP is a lobbying force with all government levels for policing issues.

The position rotates each year and brings responsibilities of guidance and coordination of resources.

An RCMP press release calls the South Okanagan detachment one of the “busiest,” in B.C.

“This new assignment will surely add to his workload, however with his demonstrated leadership and management skills he is up to the challenge,” the press release states.

“I have the honour of serving as BCACP president for 2019 and I hope to continue the work the association has undertaken under the leadership of Chief Constable Del Manak in 2018,” De Jager said. “Throughout the next year we will continue to support consistency in delivering respectful, lawful and bias-free policing practices throughout the province.”
