After nearly 40 years on the job, Sergeant Bob Shedden with the Cranbrook RCMP has called it a day.
His career started just down the road at the Kimberley detachment, where he applied to become an officer September 13th, 1977.
Shedden was sworn in as an officer in 1980 and worked at various detachments throughout the Province, including Elkford and Cranbrook.
He’s worked the last six years with the Key City RCMP as a Career Development and Resourcing Advisor.
Shedden plans to join the RCMP Reservist program, continuing to support officers in his retirement.
On his last day, September 13th, he stopped by the Kimberley detachment once again to reminisce about his long career.
