Manitoba RCMP announces province’s new top cop – Winnipeg


The Manitoba RCMP has a brand new commander.

Assistant commissioner Rob Hill was named Manitoba’s new commanding officer Thursday, placing him in command of greater than 80 police detachments throughout the province, in addition to the RCMP headquarters on Portage Avenue in Winnipeg.

Hill was first posted to Morris, Man., as an RCMP constable in 1997, and has had a prolonged profession at postings throughout the nation, primarily associated to medical and demanding incidents, owing to his expertise as a medic within the Canadian Armed Forces.

In Manitoba, Hill has served as felony operations officer, a supervisor with the Winnipeg drug part, and a common obligation police officer locally of Island Lake.

“(Hill’s) earlier expertise in Manitoba and all through Canada will serve Mr. Hill properly as he gives management to the RCMP, confidence to Manitobans and talent to the various challenges that include policing,” stated provincial Justice Minister Kelvin Goertzen.

“We’re grateful for his continued service and the dedication of all these serving within the RCMP in Manitoba and Canada.”

Hill replaces outgoing commanding officer Jane MacLatchy, who introduced her retirement earlier this 12 months.
