Superintendent Peter Tewfik is the Officer in Charge of Crime Reduction Strategies for the RCMP in Alberta.
He is passionate about seeking partnerships and implementing innovative policing approaches to reduce the long term impact of crime in communities across Alberta.
Since being named the Officer in Charge of Crime Reduction in 2018, he has supervised the implementation of several Crime Reduction Strategy initiatives which have resulted in the reduction of key property crime indicators in the province.
Before starting in this role, Peter was the Operations Officer for Central Alberta District overseeing 23 detachments around the provincial capital. During his time at the district he developed the Integrated Crime Reduction Unit (iCRU) model for the region. This unit is dedicated to targeting repeat offenders and holding them accountable.
During his post in British Columbia, Peter was the recipient of the Meritorious Service Medal from British Columbia as well as the Commissioners Commendation for his contribution in developing a new investigative technique which has since been adopted by the RCMP and shared internationally.
He lives in St. Albert with his wife, and two children.
