Supt. Glassford has 23 years of service with the RCMP and has served throughout Canada, including numerous postings in the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia and Alberta. Supt. Glassford joined the Red Deer RCMP in 2019 where she was appointed as the Operations Officer.
“Over the past three years, I have worked alongside a great team of dedicated RCMP members and municipal employees who are committed to serving the citizens of Red Deer,” said Superintendent Glassford. “Together, I look forward to actioning our new Policing Priorities and furthering our collaboration with The City to shape community safety for years to come.”
