Kamloops has a new top cop.

Insp. Brad Mueller is the new Officer in Charge of the Kamloops detachment following former Supt. Yves Lacasse's decision to leave and take a job with KGHM International.

A press release issued today on the RCMP's provincial website revealed some early details about the new man in charge. No start date was mentioned.

Mueller brings to Kamloops 25 years of experience in policing in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

He comes to Kamloops with his family from Manitoba, where he leaves behind his role as Assistant District Officer of the Manitoba West District.

Born in Brandon, Man., he joined the RCMP in 1988 after graduating from the University of Manitoba with a science degree. Throughout his 25 years in the force, he rose through rankings in a variety of positions including supervisory roles and plainclothes investigation.

“Living and working in British Columbia will be a new experience for me. My family and I are very excited at the prospect of making this area of the province our next home. My wife and two children look forward to experiencing the lifestyle that the city of Kamloops, and area of B.C., will offer us,” said Insp. Mueller in the press release.

Mueller is expected to be promoted to Superintendent in the 'near future.'
