RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller.

The officer in charge of the Kamloops RCMP detachment is moving on.

Supt. Brad Mueller has accepted a promotional transfer to “K” Division (Alberta) and will be promoted to the rank of chief superintendent.

“This was not an easy decision to make as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here in Kamloops and working with such a dedicated group of people at this detachment,” Mueller said as he announced his promotion to officers and employees of the detachment.

“The City of Kamloops has such a strong sense of community.  Both Kathy and I have embraced living here and have been proud to call this home for the last four years.  We will miss the people and always remember our time here.”

Mueller will move to RCMP headquarters in Edmonton and take over the position of deputy Criminal Operations officer.  He will be responsible for oversight for all operational policing matters in relation to General Duty policing for the RCMP in Alberta as well as other sections supporting Criminal Operations in the province.

“Our detachment has done tremendous work and made great strides over the last four years and I have full confidence that the officers and management team are very well positioned, on all fronts, going forward,” he said

Mueller will work with the City of Kamloops and the South East District RCMP over the next few months to identify his successor.
