Our Loss is Nanaimo’s Gain — Oak Bay’s Chief Constable Accepts New Post


Oak Bay’s popular Chief Constable Mark Fisher is leaving Oak Bay to accept the position of Detachment Commander of the Nanaimo RCMP, the largest detachment on Vancouver Island.  Mark has been a real leader in setting high standards for community policing in Oak Bay and has a wealth of experience and leadership in modern policing practices.  Mark has served communities all over BC and left the West Shore RCMP Detachment in 2011 to join Oak Bay.  I wish Mark all the very best in his new position and it has been a distinct pleasure knowing and working with Mark these past 2 years.

The Municipal Police Board will determine how Mark’s vacancy will be filled for the interim and the search for a permanent Chief Constable for Oak Bay will commence sometime in the future.
