There will soon be a new deputy sheriff in town, as Terrace is one of several communities to receive a new graduate from the Justice Institute of British Columbia.
Each of the 21 new recruits completed a 14-week training program, earning a post-secondary certificate.
“Congratulations to our new deputy sheriffs and their families. I know they are eager to start their assignments across the province and put their training into practice. Their contributions to the justice system are welcome,” said Paul Corrado, chief sheriff and executive director of the BC Sheriff Service.
The deputy sheriffs transport people in custody, provide courthouse security, coordinate court appearances, and manage the jury among other responsibilities.
Other courthouses to get new deputy sheriffs include Prince George, Fort St. John, Williams Lake, Nelson, with others being posted in the Lower Mainland.
