Superintendent Ghalib Bhayani: North Vancouver RCMP’s New Top Cop

He’s been to Delta, Sudan, Iraq and even Burnaby. But for Supt. Ghalib Bhayani, North Vancouver is the promised land.

“I’ve been trying to get to North Van for 18 years, my entire RCMP career,” said the Ghalib1force’s new officer in charge. “This detachment is considered a gem. Simply put, a gem.”

Bhayani took over the top post in July (2019) after former detachment commander Chris Kennedy stepped down.

Like a lot of Ismaili Muslims in Canada, Bhayani and his family fled Uganda to escape persecution from the Idi Amin dictatorship in the early ’70s. He spent his youth in Toronto before his family moved to Surrey, where he went to high school.
