Terrace finally has a new RCMP staff sergeant

Terrace RCMP finally has a new staff sergeant with the promotion of one of its own members.

Sergeant Michael Robinson is now Staff Sergeant Robinson.

He has 19 years in the RCMP, all of which has been within Northern B.C.

“Mike brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the position of staff sergeant,” said inspector Sydney Lecky.

The staff sergeant position has been vacant since Inspector Lecky’s promotion to officer in charge last year.

Robinson joined the Mounties when he was just 20 years old, leaving his home province of Prince Edward Island to follow in his father’s high browns.

Throughout his career, Robinson has served at six posts including Fort Nelson, New Aiyansh, Tsay Keh Dene, Prince George, and Terrace.

This is his third position with the Terrace RCMP detachment: his first was as a corporal from 2006-2008; he later returned as a sergeant in 2011.

In January 2016, Robinson took on the acting role as the Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) in Charge of Operations, while maintaining many of his duties as the Operations Support NCO.

Robinson will be in charge of all uniformed members.

He also values his new position and sees the importance of developing some of our junior members, placing emphasis on mentorship and support with the help of the more senior members.

Of particular importance to Robinson, both personally and professionally, is family relationships, communicating with your kids and knowing what’s going on in their lives: where they are, what they’re doing, what’s frustrating them, and who they aspire to become.
