"I am extremely honoured and humbled to be selected as the 25th Commanding Officer of the Alberta RCMP" said Deputy Commissioner Zablocki. "Policing is about people and I am committed to working hand-in-hand with our citizens to ensure their communities are safe and strong for the future." Zablocki is a 28-year RCMP veteran who has spent most of his career in Alberta. He helped establish two permanent crime reduction teams to combat serious and violent crime in the province. There are 113 RCMP detachments across the province and more than 1.7 million Albertans live in the division jurisdictions.
