I want to welcome Officer-in-Charge, Darren Carr to this new leadership role with the RCMP and with Coquitlam Detachment, said Mayor Richard Stewart. His years of service in the lower mainland – including here in Coquitlam – and his collaborative approach, position him well to address community safety in Coquitlam.

On behalf of the City of Port Coquitlam, we are pleased to welcome Superintendent Carr to the role of OIC, said Mayor Brad West. Council and the RCMP in Port Coquitlam maintain a partnership, working collaboratively to ensure the safety and security of our community.

Superintendent Carr joined the RCMP in 2000 and has served exclusively within the Lower Mainland where he has worked frontline policing, training and major crime investigations. He first arrived in Coquitlam in 2020 where he managed general duty, traffic services and investigative services. During his career, Superintendent Carr has been recognised for his contributions to public safety, whereby he was awarded the Commanding Officer’s Commendation for bravery and the Commissioner’s Commendation for Outstanding Service. In addition, Superintendent Carr has been recognised by the Province of British Columbia and has received awards for both valour and meritorious service.

Darren’s experience and extensive knowledge will serve him well in this newly appointed role, says Lower Mainland District Commander, Assistant Commissioner Maureen Levy. His commitment to public safety and serving the community will continue to be an asset to Coquitlam RCMP.

I am both honoured and proud to be appointed the Officer-In-Charge of the Coquitlam RCMP Detachment in service of the communities of Kwikwetlem First Nation, the villages of Anmore and Belcarra and the cities of Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam, said Superintendent Darren Carr. My vision is to continue to focus on our strategic priorities, strive to be transparent, accountable, inclusive and accessible as the police service of jurisdiction and be adaptive to the changing needs and complexities of the communities we serve.

Superintendent Darren Carr assumed his new position on May 8, 2024.
