Richmond RCMP will soon welcome a new officer in charge with the departure of Chief Superintendent Will Ng.
Ng has served as officer in charge of the Richmond detachment for the last five years. His new role will be Assistant Commissioner in charge of federal investigative services and organized crime for BC RCMP.
“Under Chief Superintendent Ng’s leadership, Richmond has continued to be one of the safest communities in the region,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “His strength, dedication and vision has made the Richmond RCMP detachment a shining example of how police and municipalities can work together to build a safe and resilient community. We wish him well in his new role and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the RCMP.”
Ng has worked to ensure a positive workplace culture for the officers, civilians and volunteers that serve the detachment, according to an RCMP release. His on-going and continued commitment to this has earned him great respect and appreciation amongst the detachment. While he will be missed, those working alongside him are confident this culture of positivity will continue.
“Serving alongside the members, civilian staff and volunteers over the past five years has been an absolute career highlight for me,” said Ng. “I am extremely proud of the many outstanding accomplishments that have been achieved and know the community of Richmond will continue to be well served.”
The timeline for Ng’s transition has not been determined, and he will continue in his role until a successor has been chosen.
