Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Constable Janice Schoepp has moved onto K Division.
 
After serving 3.5 years in the Fort, she has taken on a role with the call-back unit.
 
“I don’t have all the details because it’s new to Alberta, but they’ve done these units in other divisions and I think the idea is they’ll take some of the calls and divert them from detachments, calls that would be like, we’d consider priority calls, lets say where police officers don’t actually need to attend these calls, but people still need to speak to a police officer,” said Schoepp.
 
She will really miss the people of Fort Saskatchewan.
 
“I think when it comes down to it, there’s great people everywhere and the resources here, the sense of community is really good here and I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of different agencies in cooperation and they work really well together,” added Schoepp.
 
While in the Fort she worked a school resource officer, a general duty officer and got to know a lot of students in the area.
 
“It’s been pretty difficult to go in and say goodbye to everyone,” said Schoepp.
Her last day was Friday, Feb.9.
