Search Is On for PG Detachment OIC
By 250 News
Prince George, B.C.- The search is on for the person who will become the next Officer in Charge of the Prince George detachment of the RCMP.
As 250News reported yesterday, Superintendent Stubbs will be moving to Ottawa. He will take on the role as “Director General of National Criminal Operations” at RCMP National Headquarters. While the role has a civilian style title, the RCMP rank is Chief Superintendent.
"The last three years have been the most challenging and rewarding of my career” says Superintendent Stubbs, “I'm extremely proud of the members and staff who work in this detachment. They work so hard to make this community a safe place and have been relentless in targeting prolific offenders and driving down crime in Prince George."
North District Chief Superintendent Rod Booth offers high praise for Eric Stubbs “For me it is bitter sweet. I’m terribly pleased for him and he’s a wonderful man, he’s an amazing leader. He has superior inter personal skills and he’s a great communicator. He has all the right stuff to rise as far as he wishes to rise within the RCMP. He also has youth on his side, I see amazing things in his future as he continues with the RCMP.”
Chief Superintendent Rod Booth says the window for applying for the job as Officer in Charge of the Prince George detachment will only be open for a short time “We were able to synchronize the announcement of Superintendent Stubb’s transfer to Ottawa, with the advertisement, so the job (opening) has been posted. I believe the closing date for applications is April 9th, that’s about a two week turnaround.”
Chief Superintendent Booth says he is “strongly encouraging” that the next phase of the search be a “structured interview that will include community leadership.” Previous Mayor , Dan Rogers was involved in the selection process which resulted in Stubbs being hired for the job in Prince George in March of 2011. Chief Superintendent Booth says while ultimately the decision is the RCMP’s to make, having community leaders involved is extremely important to ensure they select the right person who has the skill set and experience to be the right fit for the community.
Should Superintendent Stubbs sell his house and make the move before his replacement is able to arrive, then the second in command at the detachment ( Inspector Brad Anderson) would fill the gap.

"We got $50 million bucks, let's spend it!"
Oh...it CAN ONLY be described THAT way because its your opinion Plaopu lol Its only the finest looking building downtown and in fact from an architectual viewpoint is Amazing!
predecessor precedes or comes before the subject
In my opinion it is a bloody disaster. In fact it almost appears that the architect tried to see how ugly he could make the building and still have us pay him.
It looks way too big for the size of lot it sits on and does not reflect the serious business it is intended for: Policing and law enforcement.
Thank you mods.
It actually reminds me of a 1 ton diesel with a lift kit and big stack exhausts rising out the box spewing black smoke all over the place.
In HR management circles, there should be a succession management plan in place, particularly for senior management positions such as this.
Ideally, the position incumbent leaving would stay for at least a couple of weeks and orientate the new person to the detachment, the job, and any important initiatives planned and/or underway. IMO
Just putting that out there.
Ugly ? I'll go one step further. That building is FUGLY. Looks like 7 different architects all got to design one small part of the building.
What he/she said.
And the sides are ugly too. What genius dreamed up that pattern and those colours?
Holy Sh#t were screwed!!
