New sheriffs ready to serve B.C. courthouses

The latest class of provincial sheriffs has graduated from the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) Sheriff Academy in New Westminster.

Twenty-four recruits have completed their intensive 14-week training program and are ready to serve immediately in B.C.’s courthouses.

“Congratulations to all of today’s recruits and thank you for all of your hard work, commitment and dedication over the last several months,” said David Eby, Attorney General. “Sheriffs provide distinguished service to the citizens of this province every day and play an integral role in the administration of justice.”

Sheriffs serve throughout British Columbia and are responsible for carrying out orders of the court. They also ensure the safety and security of all court users, including the judiciary, the legal profession, other justice-related agencies, court staff and members of the public.

The B.C. Sheriff Service is one of the founding members of JIBC, known nationally for its training. The recruit training program is recognized by the JIBC as a post-secondary certificate program.

“Congratulations to these graduates who bring enthusiasm and new skills,” said Lynda Cavanaugh, director of sheriffs, B.C. Sheriff Services. “As they start their new careers across the province, they’ll benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our dedicated members.”

“JIBC congratulates our graduating deputy sheriffs for successfully completing the rigorous sheriff recruit training program and setting off on their new exciting careers in law enforcement,” said Michel Tarko, president and CEO of JIBC. “We are honoured to continue our work in support of B.C. Sheriff Services and proud to educate and train the province’s sheriff recruits for this vital role in our court system.”

The recruits will be posted to the Lower Mainland, Vernon, Kamloops, Kelowna, Cranbook and Victoria. The next class of sheriff recruits are set to graduate on Oct. 4, 2019, with future classes scheduled October 2019 and 2020.
