Terrace will be getting a new deputy sheriff at our courthouse next month as one of several communities to receive the 12 graduates from the Justice Institute of BC.

The deputy sheriffs escort prisoners between courthouses, correctional centres and police lockup centres; provide courthouse and courtroom security, which includes management of lockup facilities in courthouses;  manage juries and protect the government and do threat assessments for ministries.

Graduates have completed an intensive 16-week Sheriff Recruit Training program, including in-class and field training at courthouses.

Other courthouses to get the new deputy sheriffs include Prince George, Fort St. John, Quesnel, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Dawson Creek, Vernon and Cranbrook. An additional recruit will be based out of New Westminster and will serve several courthouses in the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver Law Courts, North Vancouver, Richmond, Surrey and Port Coquitlam.

The new recruits join the approximately 495 deputy sheriffs serving throughout the province.
