In 2016, she was promoted to staff sergeant and served in the General Investigation Section, where she oversaw numerous investigative units.
 
Since promotion to inspector in 2017, she has worked as the Officer-in-Charge of the Court and Detention Services Section. Superintendent Wilson achieved improvements in training as well as policy – leading a comprehensive review of the Jail manual of operations. In addition, she initiated and coordinated a major upgrade of the Vancouver Jail facility, which processes over 16,000 persons annually.
