Superintendent Ted De Jager has been named the newly-appointed president of the BC Association of Chiefs of Police (BCACP), the RCMP announced Feb. 11.

According to a release from the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen Regional Detachment, De Jager was elected at their most recent quarterly meeting.

“I have the honour of serving as BCACP president for 2019 and I hope to continue the work the association has undertaken under the leadership of Chief Constable Del Manak in 2018,” De Jager said in the release. “Throughout the next year, we will continue to support consistency in delivering respectful, lawful and bias-free policing practices throughout the province.”

The president of the BCACP is responsible for guiding and coordinating partnerships between municipal forces and RCMP in the province to lobby government on policing issues.

The president position rotates each year. Manak, the previous year’s president, is based at the Victoria Police Deptartment.
