In 2013 he left the detachment to join the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team, where he became an accredited team commander.

Inspector Gander returned to the Ridge Meadows detachment in the fall of 2019 as a watch commander overseeing the frontline officers and taking on the role as the plain clothes commander.

In May of 2021 he was promoted to Inspector.

Gander said he has lived in Maple Ridge with my family for 20 years.

“It’s actually really exciting to be able to continue my career in my home town serving the citizens of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows,” he said.
