Say hi to Scotty, Surrey RCMP’s new spokesguy

SURREY — Scotty Schumann.

It’s a name you’ll be seeing a lot in print.

Corporal Schumann, a 14-year-veteran with the Surrey RCMP, is the detachment’s new spokesman. He takes over from Cpl. Bert Paquet, who was promoted and is now in Winnipeg with the RCMP “D” Division’s Communications Services.

Schumann last post was with Surrey RCMP’s traffic unit. He has received two “Officer in Charge” awards for policing and has twice been nominated to Alexa’s Team for his efforts to curb drunk drivers. The team is named after four-year-old Alexa Middelaer, who was killed by a drunk driver in Ladner in 2008.

“I am looking forward to continuing the good relationships we have with our media partners and keeping our community informed about relevant public safety issues,” Schumann said. “I have lived in the area for over thirty years and I am very familiar with the community’s issues and concerns.”

Schumann said he enjoys spending time with his wife, their two children, two dogs, two cats and tank full of fish. When he’s not on duty, he also enjoys scuba diving and motorcycling.
