Red Deer's top cop announces resignation
In an unexpected announcement today, Red Deer’s top police officer has resigned from his post.
Supt. Warren Dosko worked his last day at the city’s detachment on Friday.
Acting city manager Paul Goranson said Dosko will be greatly missed. Goranson said he resigned for personal reasons but did not elaborate. He also said Dosko was looking forward to his retirement.
“His strategic approach to policing issues has been an asset to Red Deer,” said Goranson.
“We look forward to continuing this positive relationship with Red Deer RCMP and wish Warren all the best in his retirement.”
Dosko has been with the RCMP for 27 years and came to Red Deer in 2011 after serving in St. Albert as detachment commander. Goranson said Dosko has made significant contributions to policing in Red Deer.
Dosko’s interim replacement is acting detachment commander David Elliott. The search has already begun for a permanent replacement.
Elliott has worked in Red Deer for the last year as the RCMP’s Operations Officer for Central Alberta District.
