Syd Lecky had been the staff sergeant at the detachment

The RCMP didn’t have to go far to find a Terrace detachment commander to replace Inspector Dana Hart who retired earlier this year.

It has now promoted Staff Sergeant Syd Lecky, who had been the detachment’s second in command and acting as the officer in charge since Hart’s retirement, to the position of Inspector.

Lecky has been in Terrace since late 2013 when he was promoted to Staff Sergeant from a posting as the sergeant in charge of the Mackenzie detachment.

It’s his second time in Terrace as he was here from 2005 to 2008 as a corporal.

After leaving Terrace the first time Lecky was promoted to sergeant and became an advisory non-commissioned officer for aboriginal policing services in the north, based in Prince George.

Lecky was in that job for approximately two years after which he transferred to Mackenzie and then back to Terrace.

“His knowledge of the challenges facing the RCMP in Terrace and his commitment to the betterment of the community make him the ideal candidate for the position,” said the City of Terrace in a release.
