Inspector Holly Glassford named temporary RCMP boss in Red Deer

Inspector Holly Glassford will be the acting RCMP Officer in Charge in Red Deer until the post is filled permanently.

Glassford is filling in for Superintendent Gerald Grobmeier, who served as Red Deer’s OIC for nearly three years and retired last week.

Glassford has 23 years of service experience with the RCMP and has served throughout Canada, including postings in the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia and Alberta.

In 2019, she was appointed as the operations officer for the Red Deer detachment.

“I am pleased to serve as the interim Officer in Charge for Red Deer,” said Inspector Glassford in a news release. “As we head into a new year, I look forward to continuing the great work the Red Deer RCMP is doing to support and protect our community.”

The OIC hiring process is currently underway, and Glassford is expected to be in the role until the position is filled.
