IT’S the second time in Terrace for the RCMP detachment’s new staff sergeant who took up his post late last month.

Staff Sergeant Sid Lecky’s first posting in Terrace was between 2005-2008 when he was a corporal in charge of one of the detachment’s watch patrols.

This time, Lecky is the second in command at the detachment behind its commander, Inspector Dana Hart.

Lecky is now in charge of the operations in the detachment, overseeing the four watches and a few other things, he said.

“I enjoyed my time here. I like the outdoors and fishing,” said Lecky about his first assignment here.

After leaving Terrace, he was promoted to sergeant and went to Prince George as an advisory non-commissioned officer for the aboriginal policing services throughout the north for about two years.

Then he made a lateral move as sergeant to Mackenzie as detachment commander there for three years before being promoted to staff sergeant and returning here.

With more than twice as many officers as Mackenzie, Lecky said working at the Terrace detachment will have “a lot more challenges.”

“In theory, 8 to 4 but I don’t think I’ve ever worked that in my life,” Lecky said about his work hours, adding the hours are usually an hour or two longer than that.

He won’t be going out on calls but will be seen around the community quite a bit.

“I prefer to get out of the office when I can,” he said.

And with the posting being for five years, Lecky will be around for quite a while.

“It’s not a stopover for me,” he said.
