NEWS RELEASE · 30th April 2015
June 18, 2015 will be the last working day for Kitimat Detachment Commander, Staff Sergeant Phil Harrison. Harrison, who assumed command of the Kitimat Detachment 2.5 years ago, began as an Auxiliary Constable in Agassiz, B.C., before joining the RCMP in 1993. He has served in F Division (Saskatchewan), K Division (Alberta) and finally Kitimat in E Division (BC) during the past 22.5 years. Prior to joining the Force, Harrison worked for 12.5 years for Agriculture Canada at the Agassiz Research Station in Agassiz, B.C..
After 35 years of public service, Harrison plans on retiring to Agassiz, B.C. taking up golfing and perhaps become a snowbird. “I have enjoyed my time in Kitimat”, he states”, “The scenery, people and outdoor activities available is just fantastic. It has been a real pleasure work with the District of Kitimat Council members and employees, the various community groups, industry and especially the members and staff of Kitimat Detachment. I will miss them all”.
Sergeant Graham Morgan will assume the position of Kitimat Detachment Commander until such time as the position is permanently filled. The process is expected to take somewhere between 6 to 12 months before a new Detachment Commander arrives.
