Sooke RCMP welcomes Staff Sergeant Jeff McArthur, who will be the detachment commander replacing Steve Wright.
McArthur started in Sooke on Monday, March 24, and comes from Prince George where he served for almost 10 years. The new-to-Sooke commander has roots on Vancouver Island, and his job has taken him to various places throughout British Columbia. He and his family, along with their two terriers, are settling nicely into our community.
When he’s not in uniform, you may be able to find him on a golf course. Other hobbies include running and cycling, and he might even be tempted to give surfing a try.
Steve Wright is now working with the RCMP in Westshore, although he’s still taking up residence in Sooke, and still volunteering with the Sooke Lions. Wright is also training for the Cops for Cancer tour, so you haven’t heard the last from him yet either.
