The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP has a new media relations officer
Constable Kelly Brett takes over the role that has been vacant since Cst. Jocelyn Noseworthy went on maternity leave last year.
“Cst. Brett has been a trusted and highly motivated Member of the RCMP since 2007. Over the past decade she has served communities throughout British Columbia, including the Squamish and Kelowna RCMP, ” says a release from Superintendent Jim McNamara.
Brett has 10 years of policing experience, with a strong background in media relations. She also holds a degree in Business Administration.
Born and raised in the Vernon area, Brett is an active member of her community and is proud to be directly serving its residents in her new role.
“We would like to thank the city of Vernon and all media outlets for their patience as we worked strategically to fill the Media Relations Officer role with an RCMP Member. We are confident she will provide the highest calibre service to our community,” says McNamara.
In addition to Brett’s media relations role, she will also be responsible for working alongside the volunteer programs at the Vernon North Okanagan Detachment.
That will include working with the Auxiliary Constable program, Crime Stoppers, Community Safety Office and the City of Vernon RCMP Volunteers.
Cst. Brett started her duties Monday.
