The Brant County Ontario Provincial Police detachment will welcome a new commander on Sept. 2.
Inspector Lisa Anderson will take up the mantle most recently held by Inspector Pete Liptrott and Acting Inspector Jim Millson.
Chief Superintendent John Cain, OPP West Region Commander, announced the selection of Anderson as the next Commander of the Brant County OPP on Wednesday.
Anderson was chosen after a thorough evaluation process by OPP command and civilian governance partners. Cain thanked members of the Brant Police Services Board for their participation in the selection process.
Anderson started her career in 1994 with the OPP after obtaining her Bachelor of Science at Brock University. She has worked in frontline policing as a supervisor, traffic sergeant, operations manager and detachment commander in both general law enforcement and traffic detachments.
She has also worked in crime and specialty services dealing with organized crime, provincial auto theft, emergency response, asset forfeiture, technical support bureau and professional standards.
Anderson looks forward to starting her new position and engaging with the community in Brant County on Sept. 2.
“I’m honored to be selected as the Detachment Commander for the County of Brant OPP,” Anderson said. “I look forward to meeting, and working with, the residents of County of Brant and leading the County of Brant OPP detachment staff that hold their safety and security in the highest regard.”
