RCMP – Credit Where Credit’s Due

In the first week of April, the Cranbrook detachment, the Cranbrook/Kimberley Crime Reduction Unit as well as the Cranbrook Police Dog Service, were able to arrest Cody Kenneth Bauer of Calgary and Kristopher Goerzen of Brooks. Both have been charged with the first degree murder of Nick Lush.

In conversation with Ontario’s first female undercover officer and first criminal profiler

Kate Lines began her policing career in 1977 as a traffic cop with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), handing out tickets and responding to crashes.

One day, she responded to a posting for an “unmarried, female officer,” a choice that would make her the first woman to be a full-time undercover cop for the OPP. She would later train with the FBI in the then-emerging field of criminal profiling and end up working on some of Canada’s most infamous cases, from Michael Dunahee’s disappearance in B.C., to helping track down Paul Bernardo, Michael Rafferty and Russell Williams.

Her memoir of those years, Crime Seen: From Patrol Cop to Profiler, My Stories from Behind the Yellow Tape, is now on bookstore shelves.
