Mission has a new top cop.

The District announced on Wednesday that Inspector Annette Fellner is the new incoming Officer-in-Charge of the Mission RCMP Detachment.

Fellner will replace current Insp. Ted De Jager who is taking a new position in the Penticton area.

“We are very pleased to have Inspector Fellner coming to Mission,” said Mayor Randy Hawes. “Her experience, expertise, and leadership abilities will be an asset for our community. We’re looking forward to working together to continue the excellent work done by Inspector De Jager to enhance community safety here in Mission.”

Fellner joined the RCMP in 1996 and has served in B.C., Saskatchewan and Manitoba in multiple roles including time spent as a detachment commander to five rural communities.

She has worked in the Economic Crime Unit and the Financial Integrity and Commercial Crime Unit taking on the role as team commander leading complex investigations into identity theft, mortgage fraud and Ponzi schemes.

Fellner was also a senior investigator in Manitoba’s Serious and Organized Crime Unit where she led high-­‐profile investigations providing oversight, supervision and development guidance on major projects.

Most recently, she was a regional duty officer, a role that monitors operations 24/7 and provides operational advice and guidance to detachments throughout the Lower Mainland including Mission.

An overriding theme in Insp. Fellner’s career has been her role as a leader and mentor to fellow police officers, which included an assignment to Depot where she was responsible for the development of future police officers during their initial cadet training.

Assigned to D­‐Division’s office of the Commanding Officer, Fellner lead the development of the respectful workplace program in Manitoba.

She also established that division’s Peer-to­‐Peer system providing high-‐level advice to the province’s most senior police officers.

“I feel very privileged and honoured to be taking on the role as the Officer­‐in-Charge of Mission RCMP Detachment,” said Fellner. “I’m looking forward to working with the community and leading the fine men and women who contribute daily to the safety and security of the District of Mission.”
