Bill Fordy discusses transparency when it comes to policing, the law, and the community.
Assistant Commissioner Bill Fordy joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on April 10, 1989 where he was first posted to the Surrey Detachment. Somewhat uniquely, all of his service has been in the Lower Mainland, British Columbia.
He’s held a variety of positions within both police detachments and specialized units including the Serious Crime Section, Vancouver Polygraph Section, Special Projects Unit and Interview Team as well as the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team to name a few. His duties have given him an opportunity to travel and lecture in Canada and the United States on many topics. In 2014, he was appointed to the Order of Merit of the Police Forces by the Governor General of Canada.
Assistant Commissioner Bill Fordy has been at the centre of a number of high-profile investigations during his career and he is a proud and committed member of the RCMP. He now oversees the Lower Mainland District which serves 1.8 million people and has in excess of 3,200 employees.
