Protector Calls it a Day

Supt. Keith Robinson to retire after 40 years  on guard for the community

Released by Cst. Tracy Wolbeck, Chilliwack RCMP, UFVRD

 

t is with mixed emotions that we are announcing the retirement of Superintendent Keith Robinson, Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional RCMP Detachment.

Superintendent Robinson joined the Force in Edmonton, Alberta in August 1973, and has had an extensive policing history within the Lower Mainland.

After completing the RCMP training in Regina, Saskatchewan, he was posted to Abbotsford Municipal Detachment.

During his 39 1/2 year career he has served in Abbotsford, Langley, and Surrey in various capacities.

In November 2006, he was transferred to the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment to be the Operations Support Officer. He was then appointed Acting Officer in Charge a year and a half later.

In July of 2009, he was unanimously appointed to the full time position of Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley RCMP by the Mayors of Chilliwack, Hope, Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz/Kent which was a promotion to the rank of Superintendent.

At this time there is no indication of who will be the new Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment as the decision has not yet been made. Superintendent Robinson's last day will be February 1, 2013.

Although we will miss him, he has worked hard his whole career and has earned the opportunity to enjoy his wood working hobby, travel, and spend more time with his family and future grandchildren.

Please join the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment in wishing Superintendent Robinson all the best with his retirement and thank him for his contribution to the communities he has served.
