Tumbler Ridge welcomes new RCMP Detachment Commander


North District Commander, Chief Superintendent Rod Booth and the Mayor of Tumbler Ridge, Darwin Wren, formally announce the appointment of Sergeant Craig Learning to the position of Detachment Commander of Tumbler Ridge and congratulate him on his new role.

Originally from Newfoundland, Sergeant Learning joined the RCMP in May of 2003.

Learning’s first posting was in Houston BC, followed by Prince George City Detachment where he worked in General Duty and the Serious Crimes Unit.

In May of 2008, he transferred to the Alexis Creek Detachment and was soon promoted to Corporal at Alexis Creek in March of 2009.

In December 2010, Learning joined the Kamloops RCMP as a road supervisor, but soon found his way back to Prince George in October 2011, where he earned his promotion of Sergeant at the North District Headquarters working as an internal investigator with the “E” Division Professional Standards Unit.

Learning and his family jumped at the opportunity to move to Tumbler Ridge in September and they are settling in nicely with the support of their new neighbours and members of the Tumbler Ridge Detachment.

“As the incoming Detachment Commander, I look forward to serving the community and providing a high quality of policing service to its citizens,” states Sgt. Learning.

“On a personal note, I enjoy running, love to play hockey and I look forward to lacing the skates up locally. I bring with me my wife and two boys, aged three and one.

“My family and I are very excited to be here and we look forward to meeting the people of Tumbler Ridge and enjoying all the amenities this great community has to offer.”
