Mission RCMP gets new top cop

Insp. Ted De Jager named Officer in Charge of Mission RCMP detachment.

Insp. Ted De Jager has taken over as the new officer in charge of the Mission RCMP detachment.

The detachment’s former head, Insp. Richard Konarski, retired in July.

De Jager is a 16-year veteran of the force. Before joining the RCMP, he was an officer in the Canadian Forces and served throughout Canada and overseas in Germany and Cambodia as a troop commander, squadron commander and tactics instructor. He was also a combat engineer officer.

Prior to his appointment in Mission, De Jager was officer in charge of the operations development unit at the RCMP’s E Division headquarters. He was “responsible for developing strategies for effective service delivery,” according to a District of Mission press release.

“We are pleased to have Inspector De Jager serving our community and leading the fine men and women who are dedicated to protecting our citizens,” said the District of Mission’s chief administrative officer, Ken Bjorgaard.

“Having Ted join our Lower Mainland District management team is a great asset as he brings a fresh perspective and understanding of the many challenges policing currently faces in British Columbia. His poise and experience in operational policing can assist in overcoming some of these challenges,” said RCMP chief superintendent Brian Cantera.
