A recent graduate of the RCMP training depot at Regina, RCMP Cst. Kathryn Robertson started her first posting last month at Sylvan Lake.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” she said of the opportunity to work in the Sylvan Lake area.

She grew up in Sunderland, Ontario, a farming community about 100 kilometres northeast of Toronto in Durham region.

Robertson attended Nipissing University (English with history minor) and Canadore College (police foundations) before working as a park warden at a provincial park in Central Ontario.

She selected police work, “because I love being part of the community. This gives me a chance to give back to the community. I enjoy the work, there are challenges, it’s always something different. No call is the same.”

The RCMP was her choice because of the “options it provides”. Robertson explained there are so many ways you can go with it … various specialities and opportunities to work in different provinces.

Travelling is one of her joys. “One of the benefits of being in the RCMP is I can see different parts of the country.” She’s travelled in Canada and Europe and is planning a trip to Australia in the future.

Equestrian horse riding, martial arts and staying active are among her interests.

She also loves volunteering and getting involved in the community.
