FORT SASKATCHEWAN, ALBERTA, (March 25, 2013) – The Fort Saskatchewan R.C.M.P. detachment will soon bid farewell to their senior officer. Staff Sergeant Dwayne Rawson's last day in charge of Fort Saskatchewan detachment is March 28. He is moving on to a new posting as the senior officer in charge of the Westlock detachment.
Rawson came to Fort Saskatchewan in the summer of 2007 as a Sergeant in charge of operations and two years later, was promoted to the role of Staff Sergeant.
“S/Sgt. Rawson has significantly impressed upon us the need to work together to maintain a safe and caring community in his numerous interactions with seniors, youth, social agencies, service clubs, businesses and industry,” stated Ward Antonuik, general manager of Community and Protective Services, the department that oversees the contracted services of the R.C.M.P.
During his time in Fort Saskatchewan, S/Sgt. Rawson attended many community functions, presented safety and fraud prevention information to seniors and anti-bullying information to youth.
“Many citizens have had occasion to meet with Dwayne and he was greeted wherever he went in the community; in restaurants, on the streets, and was hugged frequently,” remarked Josie Krokis, the City’s Protective Services director. “For his farewell, he received a card from the seniors at Pioneer House signed by about forty people. “
The Central Alberta District has appointed S/Sgt. Mike Pierson to act as interim Detachment Commander until a permanent replacement is found.
