Brenda Lucki named new commissioner designate of RCMP
Brenda Lucki is the new commissioner designate of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
“She will play a vital role in advancing reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, promoting gender equity, supporting mental wellness across the RCMP, addressing workplace harassment, and protecting the civil liberties of all Canadians,” announced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
In her nearly 32 years with the national police force, she has served in divisions in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan, worked with the United Nations in the former Yugoslavia, and helped train and select police units for the UN Civilian Police Mission in Haiti.
She is the 24th commissioner in the RCMP’s history and the first woman to serve as commissioner in a permanent role.
