Ridge Meadows RCMP have another officer to help get their messages out to the media and public.
Const. Amanda Harnett will be part-time spokesperson for the detachment, backing up Cpl. Alanna Dunlop, who’s the primary spokesperson.
RCMP also use retired officer Dan Herbranson, who’s no longer a member of the force, to provide background information to the media. However, he can’t be quoted in media stories.
Harnett previously was spokesperson for the Mission detachment.
“We are proud of the strides we have made over the last several years regarding our overall communication program. We have evolved to a robust online web and strong social media presence, which involves open dialogue with our followers,” said Supt. Dave Fleugel.
