Katie is currently in her eleventh year of policing with the Delta Police Department. She spent her first five years in Patrol, her next three years in the Drugs and Special Projects Section and then spent two years in the Major Crime Section. Katie is currently the Acting Sergeant in charge of Major Crime Team 2. Besides being passionate about her career, Katie truly believes in a work life balance and enjoys spending the majority of her time outside of policing with her two children and her wife. Katie is a proud member of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and is a founding member of DPD’s Proud Initiative whose mission is to provide an internal inclusive environment at the DPD that supports its 2SLGBTQ+ members and to increase the DPD’s connections with the 2SLGBTQ+ community within Delta. When it comes to women in policing, Katie strongly believes in supporting and mentoring each other instead of competing to truly, “lift as we rise” (thanks Brene). Katie is extremely excited to be a part of the BCWLE Board and looks forward to strengthening and uniting females in law enforcement from the ground up.
