Beverley Ann Busson - Vancouver

Click on image for full-size versionDeputy Commissioner Beverley Ann Busson's visionary leadership and communication skills have earned the respect of citizens, government officials, and her colleagues in police forces across Canada.

In 1974, she was a member of the first class of 30 women to become Regular Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and in 2001, the first woman in the history of the RCMP to achieve the rank of Deputy Commissioner. She has actively supported community, justice and student programs, as well as the Aboriginal Cadet Program. She served as Aide de Camp to the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan and as a security officer for Her Royal Highness, Princess Margaret, during two Royal visits to Canada.

Deputy Commissioner Busson established BC's highly respected Organized Crime Agency. As the Commanding Officer of the RCMP in British Columbia, she has been instrumental in the evolution of the RCMP's Pacific Region Training Centre and the establishment of Canada's first undergraduate degree in Criminal Investigation at the University College of the Fraser Valley. She is a member of the RCMP Senior Executive Committee and proudly serves as co-chair of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, in support of BC Special Olympics.

Deputy Commissioner Busson has been awarded the RCMP Long Service Medal for 30 years of Good Conduct, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and the Canadian Forces Vice Chief of Defence Staff Commendation for her support of the Canadian Cadet Movement. In 2004, she was invested as a Commander of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces and also received an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from the University College of the Fraser Valley.
