“We look forward to welcoming our new officer in charge to Fort St. John,” Mayor Lori Ackerman said in a written statement. “Sergeant Kurvers can look forward to joining an impressive police services team with the support of a number of community partnerships to continue our successful crime reduction strategies.”

Kurvers career spans almost 15 years; starting off as a General Duty Officer in Saskatchewan in 1990, and later moving to the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island where he is most recently leaving behind a gig as the Team Leader for one of the Federal and Serious Crime units in that region.

“As the incoming Detachment Commander, I look forward to serving the community and providing a high quality of policing service to its citizens,” writes Sergeant Kuvers. “…My wife and I are very excited to be moving to Fort St. John and look forward to meeting the residents’ and enjoying all the amenities this great community has to offer.”

Sergeant Kuvers and his wife leave behind two adult children in Victoria who are enjoying “successful careers.”

“Sergeant Kurvers will be promoted to the rank of inspector in the near future as he assumes his duties and takes on the reins as the Detachment Commander of Fort St. John RCMP,” Corporal Dave Tyreman of the North District Detachment concludes.
