“As an experienced commander, Jayson brings a breadth of experience to the North Vancouver RCMP detachment. When paired with Jayson’s enthusiasm for the outdoors, North Vancouver is a perfect fit. Congratulations Jayson, we are excited to see the great things you will do in North Vancouver,” said Assistant Commissioner Maureen Levy, Lower Mainland District Commander.


“I am confident that Superintendent Lucash has the experience needed to bring leadership and stability to our detachment,” said Mayor Mike Little, District of North Vancouver.

“Public safety is every community’s top priority. The North Vancouver detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police plays an important role in the protection of City residents and their property. On behalf of Council, I would like to congratulate Superintendent Jayson Lucash on his promotion to Officer-in-Charge of this detachment. I look forward to continuing to work with him on matters of public safety, community policing, and social resilience,” said Mayor Linda Buchanan, City of North Vancouver.
