RCMP Supt. Warren Dosko has announced his retirement from the RCMP. Until the position is permanently filled, Dosko’s interim replacement effective immediately is Acting Detachment Commander David Elliott. Elliott has worked in Red Deer for the last year as the RCMP’s operations officer for Central Alberta District.
Dosko came to Red Deer in 2011 after serving in St. Albert as detachment commander. He has been with the RCMP for 27 years. His last day with Red Deer municipal detachment was Dec. 20.
Dosko has made significant contributions to policing in Red Deer. This included the development of a Policing Governance and Accountability Framework and the Red Deer Policing Plan – The Way Forward. These documents will provide strategic direction for policing services in Red Deer and the establishment of service levels, which will be the foundation for service delivery by the RCMP and the municipal employees into the future.
“Superintendent Dosko will be greatly missed in our community; his strategic approach to policing issues has been an asset to Red Deer,” said Paul Goranson, acting City manager. “We look forward to continuing this positive relationship with Red Deer RCMP and wish Warren all the best in his retirement.”
