New NCO for Barriere RCMP Detachment

Cpl. Steve Mancini officially took over from Cpl Darin Underhill on July 27, 2015

Cpl. Steve Mancini is the new NCO in charge at the Barriere RCMP Detachment as of July 27.

New NCO at the Barriere RCMP Detachment is Cpl. Steve Mancini who officially took over from Cpl Darin Underhill last Monday.

Mancini and  his family hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The corporal says both he and his wife were born and raised in the prairie province, and most recently made the move to Barriere with their two young children “…to find some adventure”.

“I wanted to do the department commander role,” said Mancini, who joined the force at age 20 and now has 13 years of police work under his belt.

He comes with a range of experience that includes small towns and First Nations policing, special investigations, and a stint with a plain clothes investigation unit looking into gangs in Winnipeg.

“I’m kind of a ‘Jack of all trades’,” said Mancini.

Asked why he joined the RCMP so young, the corporal stated his dad served with the RCMP for 35 years until retirement, and his sister is an RCMP officer currently stationed in Kamloops.  “It’s in the family.”

Although the new NCO has only spent a short time in the community, and a few busy days at the detachment, he is enthusiastic about the posting, “I really like the town, and we are excited to be here.”
