RCMP veteran Ron Gosselin is one of the reasons Commissionaires exists. We know that the transition from military or police to civilian life isn’t easy. That’s why we feature people like Ron: to illustrate working at Commissionaires as a bridge into the civilian working world. Our purpose, our mandate is to provide ex-military, as well as former RCMP and police veterans with jobs that have the structure and camaraderie that they’re used to.
Ron provides one former RCMP officer’s perspective about his transition to Commissionaires. One thing we noticed about Ron was that he does well with change. He’s had to. When he was in the RCMP, Ron spent time all over, including in Regina, SK, Ottawa, ON, and Saint John, NB. He worked investigations, customs and specialized units, and some undercover work.
At Commissionaires New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, Ron’s in charge of a lot of daily change. He supervises security for the docks in Saint John. He manages the team who makes sure that the 10,000 daily cruise ship visitors have the right credentials and that the area stays safe and secure.
