Insp. Dave Fleugel has been with the Ridge Meadows RCMP since 2011 working as operations officer, but this week he was officially named the Officer in Charge.
Since the departure of Supt. Dave Walsh, Fleugel has been the acting officer in charge.
Fleugel joined the RCMP in 1992 in Ottawa but he has mainly worked in the Lower Mainland in general duties, property crime, general investigation, the drug section, and administration.
In January 2008, Fleugel received his commission.
As a regional duty officer, Fleugel provided district-wide operational assistance, providing oversight to high-risk RCMP operations across Metro Vancouver, and assisted in the coordination of cross-jurisdictional events. In 2009, Fleugel was appointed the operations officer with the Burnaby RCMP.
He will be promoted to the rank of superintendent in the near future.
