Police Services

RCMP org chart

Eleven RCMP members and four support staff are funded by the District of Sechelt and twenty four are funded by the Province, including two dedicated to serving the shíshálh Nation.
In 2020 Sechelt requested a new RCMP member to be added to the detachment to be funded by the District. This request has not yet been approved by the Province.
The Sunshine Coast Detachment of the RCMP is located in the District but provides services across the entire Sunshine Coast. In addition to the General Duty policing section, there are specialized sections of police officers in Traffic Enforcement, First Nations Policing, Youth Intervention, and Serious Crimes. The Sunshine Coast Detachment’s police officers also patrol various areas of the coast via mountain bikes and all–terrain vehicles. In addition, the RCMP routinely makes marine patrols along the coast line. The detachment is also complemented with outstanding volunteers in the areas of Auxiliary Constables, Citizens on Patrol, Speed Watch, Victim Services, Crime Stoppers, and Restorative Justice. The District funds the RCMP for the services they provide in Sechelt.
