Dale Kendall will be stepping down as head of the Morinville RCMP Detachment as of Mar.2.
"I love this community, I really do. It's been an honour to be here and represent the communities and the RCMP. The membership here and the administrative staff here are top drawer," said Kendall.
Kendall will be taking a new job opportunity at K Division in Edmonton, as the senior advisory non-commissioned officer (NCO) for the commanding officer.
"I'm looking forward to getting the divisional and national perspective on operations within the RCMP."
She's been a large part of the community since taking the role last April, with Kendall in charge crime has declined in some parts of Sturgeon County.
"What I have experienced from being the detachment command here in Sturgeon County is that building relationships with your elected officials, municipalities and members of the community is essential for successful policing," added Kendall.

The detachment is now in the midst of finding a permanent replacement for her spot.
