Ridge Meadows RCMP welcomed 11 new auxiliary constables to the detachment on Thursday night.

A graduation ceremony, attended by Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin and Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean, was held at Thomas Haney Secondary School.

The grad class performed a foot drill before receiving badges from RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh, the officer-in-charge of Ridge Meadows RCMP.

Walsh praised the constables for dedicating three months to training and called them “ultimate volunteers.”

The new auxiliary constables didn’t have long to rest, as they were on duty for Canada Day at 6 a.m. the next day on foot patrols in both Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge.
