A start date has now been confirmed for the new officer in charge of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP.
Inspector Shawna Baher will begin her duties July 23.
Her hiring was confirmed by the city of Vernon back in May.
Baher has been with the RCMP for 26 years, with stops in Nanaimo, Duncan, Penticton and most recently Surrey.
She will be promoted to the rank of superintendent once she starts in Vernon.
Baher will take over from Inspector Gord Stewart who has been the acting officer in charge since Superintendent Jim McNamara retired in March.
