KAMLOOPS - One of Kamloops’ top cops is moving across the country for a position in the Canadian capital.
Insp. Jennie Latham is transferring to Ottawa. Latham took over as interim commander in chief while the Kamloops RCMP detachment was in flux.
Former Supt. Yves Lacasse took a position with KGHM Ajax this time last year and Latham took over before the current police chief, Insp. Brad Mueller, made the transfer from Manitoba last summer. It was all part of an emergency services shuffle in the Tournament Capital last year, that included the leave of Kamloops' top fireman. Fire Chief Neil Moroz was replaced by Dale McLean after nearly 28 years on the squad.
Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said the date of Latham's departure is unknown, adding there are personal loose ends to tie up in Kamloops before the move such as the sale of her home.
Latham had been with the detachment since July 2011. Her lateral transfer moves her into a position with the grievance adjudication unit in Ottawa. Bush said her vacant position will be filled.
