Commanding Officer, D Division

Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy

Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy

Originally from Nova Scotia, Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy spent her late teenage years in Ontario and graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. In 1988, she fulfilled a childhood dream when she was sworn in as a regular member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Following language training in Montreal and Basic Training at Depot in Regina, she was assigned to a General Duty Watch in Prince George, BC.

Since that time, Assistant Commissioner MacLatchy’s many postings have taken her across the country and have included: General Duty Policing; the Musical Ride; Executive Protection; Immigration/Passport & War Crimes Investigations; Major Events Security; Federal Security Coordinator for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics & Paralympic Games; North West Regional Ethics Officer; Officer in Charge, Crime Prevention/Crime Reduction for the Province of Saskatchewan; Executive Officer Development & Resourcing; and Director of the Parliamentary Protective Service in Ottawa.

Assistant Commissioner MacLatchy has been fortunate to have had many opportunities to work unique duties throughout her career; while with the Major Events Section, she served as a Security Liaison Officer embedded with Team Canada at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Athens, Torino, and Beijing, and at the Pan Am Games in Rio de Janeiro. During her time in Saskatchewan, she was the Division Security Officer for multiple visits to the province by the Governor General and the Prime Minister. With over 31 years of service in the RCMP and now posted as the Commanding Officer in Manitoba, she is very pleased to once again be working in contract policing alongside the outstanding members of D Division.

Assistant Commissioner MacLatchy is happily married and a grandmother to a young grandson whom she loves to spoil. She is a dog lover with three rescue dogs taking up couch space alongside her and her husband at their home in Winnipeg.
