New constable nabs his first posting

From small-town northern Alberta, Carter Boytinck has joined Stettler RCMP s a new constable to its force.

“Growing up in a small town, I can understand the dynamics in the community and people really appreciate getting to know the officers in town,” said Const. Boytinck, who was raised in Fairview, north of Grande Prairie.

This is his first station with the RCMP, after graduating from the Depot in Regina in September.

“I enjoy small rural towns, that’s why I joined the RCMP to work in a small town,” said Boytinck.

“I’ve always been interested in law enforcement.

“You get to be involved with people and help make communities safe.”

That’s the model he saw from the police at home.

“In my community, the police were involved in the community and visible, ” said Boytinck.

“I want to be visible and be a good influence — that’s what I want to portray here in Stettler.”

“It’s good to out in the community for awareness.”

As he set out in his policing career, he is open to expand his service.

“”I want to get a good base with general duty and then see if I am interested in any specific sections — right now I don’t know,” said Boytinck.

While in this community, he also plans to get involved in coaching minor hockey.
