Barb retired from the Vancouver Police in 2022 after 20 years in policing to pursue her new career as an elected Councillor with the Township of Langley. As a police officer, Barb worked primarily in the Vancouver Downtown Business District in patrol, neighbourhood policing, crime analysis, as a long-term acting sergeant in crime control and as a field trainer to police recruits. Additionally, Barb was seconded to the RCMP BC Headquarters BC Real Time Intelligence Centre “RTIC-BC” providing operational support to frontline officers 24/7. As a founding Board member of BCWLE, Barb is proud to have played a key role in the start-up of an organization that exists to be a supportive community for policewomen throughout the province.
