Superintendent Martin Bruce

Superintendent Martin BruceMartin Bruce began his policing career in 1987 when he joined Northern Ireland’s Royal Ulster Constabulary. He immigrated to Canada in 1993 and worked in the private security field before being hired by the VPD in 1995. Since that time, Inspector Bruce has worked in Districts 2 and 3, the Gang Crime Unit, the Missing Women’s Task Force, and the National Weapons Enforcement Support Team (NWEST).

Superintendent Bruce was promoted to sergeant in 2008, and was assigned to the Jail and then to the Criminal Intelligence Unit. The creation of the Organized Crime Section provided an opportunity to act as the first staff sergeant (WSE) in the new section. On promotion to staff sergeant in 2013, he was assigned to District 3 and later to the Professional Standards Section. Superintendent Bruce was promoted to inspector in October 2015, and is currently assigned to the Organized Crime Section, where he is responsible for a number of high-profile and high-risk investigations.

In addition to his regular duties, Superintendent Bruce is in training as a Bronze Commander in the Public Safety Unit. He coordinated the VPD’s participation in the 2006 and 2013 firearms amnesty programs, and has regularly worked with police and community partners to address a variety of public safety issues.
