About Chris Voller
Chris grew up in both K and E Division and proudly followed in his father’s footsteps to become an RCMP Member in 2007. Initially posted in Vernon, B.C., he has spent the majority of his career on Vancouver Island where he has served across a variety of communities, roles, and responsibilities.
Throughout his 15 years in the force, Chris has worked in numerous detachments, including in Limited Duration and Isolated Posts, and in multiple front line and supervising positions, which have provided him with a range of perspectives and experiences. Most concerned by the chronic under resourcing in the RCMP and the resulting unsafe working conditions for his colleagues, Chris hopes to support Members and their families by making the RCMP a healthier and safer workplace for all. As an NPF Local Area Representative for the past two years, he was able to support his peers through multiple police shootings and IIO investigations and he will continue this valuable work as an NPF Board Member.
