Chief Neufeld indicated how difficult the decision to leave Camrose was for he and his wife, Lynn.  “This community embraced us warmly and we have met many wonderful people”, he said, “and I am immensely proud of the work of the Camrose Police Service.  The women and men, both sworn and civilian, care deeply about each other and this community.  Great people committed to serving great people – I think that’s what makes Camrose so special!”
