OnTrax Meeting Tomorrow

Just a reminder that we have our next meeting tomorrow night with special guest speaker Supt. Norm Gaumont, the RCMP Officer in charge of the Lower Mainland Traffic Services (LMD). I thought I would share his bio with you.
Supt. Norm Gaumont has been with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for the past 24 years. He started working in Traffic Safety in 1999 as the Traffic Services Commander in the southern interior of British Columbia, known as West Kootenay. He helped developed the new Traffic Services Management Information Tool (TSMIT) which is presently being implemented across RCMP jurisdiction to help manage municipal and provincial traffic units.

In December 2002 Supt. Gaumont was promoted to the Officer in Charge of Traffic Services for the Province of British Columbia. As the Officer in Charge, he facilitates the overall direction and policies associated with both Municipal and Provincial traffic programs across British Columbia which encompasses approximately 600 traffic officers. In the past seven years through his leadership British Columbia has seen fatalities decrease by 25%. In 2006 Inspector Norm GAUMONT on behalf of “E” Division Traffic Services won the International Association of Chief of Police Road Safety Award in the International category for Road Safety. In 2007 British Columbia Traffic Services won the Canadian Counsel of Motor Transport Association road safety partnership award. Supt. Gaumont also worked with the Asian Development Bank in China to improve the Chinese Road Safety programs over a 3 year period. This was done in conjunction with road safety leaders from England, Germany and Australia. In January 2010 Supt. Norm GAUMONT was transferred as the OIC for the Lower Mainland Traffic Services program.
See you tomorrow!
