Cheers to a great career! BC Division says farewell to one of its longest-working detention guards

In all, four CEOs led our BC Division during Harold Dean’s 22 years as a commissionaire. During his tenure, Harold spent 20 years on the graveyard shift at the 100 Mile House RCMP Detachment. He also worked as the Manager, Detention Guards – RCMP, ensuring the viability of this very important contract.

Harold has built a rapport with our RCMP clientele and his peers.

“I have had the pleasure of working with a number of influential office and support staff over the years, each of whom has left a lasting mark in my life; and of course, the many frontline Detention Guards that I have always considered friends first, employees second,” Harold said.

Many of members of BC Division have had the pleasure of working with him. Whether for 22 years, two years, or two weeks, it didn’t take long to realize he is an exceptionally humble, kind-hearted and hard-working individual.

Harold will now move to the Bella Coola Valley, BC with his wife Sandy. They plan to live on their boat year-round.

On behalf of the entire federation, we send our sincerest gratitude to Harold for his years of commitment to BC Division. Enjoy Bella Coola and wherever your boat may take you.
