Cpl. Bryan Mucha joins Fort Macleod detachment

Cpl. Bryan Mucha is the new operations non-commissioned officer at the RCMP detachment in Fort Macleod.

Cpl. Bryan Mucha is the new operations non-commissioned officer of the Fort Macleod RCMP detachment.
Mucha was transferred from Picture Butte where he was detachment commander before beginning duties in Fort Macleod.
With Mucha, the Fort Macleod detachment currently has eight members, a surplus of one above its regular complement of seven.
“A detachment this size needs an operations NC0,” Fort Macleod detachment head Sgt. Brent Hawker explained. “Cpl. Mucha is responsible for the operations files in the office. He supervises the investigation files the constables are working on.”
Mucha speaks highly of the community of Fort Macleod.
“I’m finding the community to be very proactive with respect to policing, and especially the RCMP and its history,” Mucha said. “I’ve had nothing but positive interaction with community members so far and have seen some very positive community events, including the Remembrance Day services and the Santa Claus Parade. I’m looking forward to continued interaction within the community and learning more about the Town of Fort Macleod and area.”
Mucha has been with the RCMP since November, 1995. His first post was for six years in Rocky Mountain House, after which he was transferred to Assumption detachment in northern Alberta for two years.
In 2003 he was transferred to Raymond, and again in 2005 to a position in Lethbridge. In 2007 he was promoted to the rank of corporal and was detachment commander at Picture Butte until the transfer to Fort Macleod.
Mucha comes from a family of policemen. His brother is currently in the RCMP and his father was a member of the RCMP for 36 years before retiring as an inspector in Alberta.
“Growing up in a police family showed me that there are a lot of positive influences,” Mucha said. “Joining the RCMP was a way for me to continue feeding off of this influence, and in turn sharing my experiences with people both in my personal life as well as through my work-related duties.”
Mucha saw Canada from coast to coast because of his father’s transfers.
“Our family has lived all over the country with the most significant stints in Vancouver, B.C., Ottawa, Ont., and St. John’s Newfoundland. But I’ve been living in Alberta for the past 20 years and I now consider this province to be my home.”
Prior to his service in the RCMP Mucha worked various jobs. “Mostly as a labourer,” he said.
Mucha also holds a bachelor of arts degree in history from the University of Lethbridge.
When he’s not overseeing crime files Mucha is likely on ice somewhere, or on a sports field. In fact his three daughters are on a Lethbridge ringette team he’s coaching.
“I’ve been playing hockey since I was five years old, it has been and remains a huge part of my life,” Mucha said. “I’ve also been heavily involved in coaching hockey, ringette, baseball, and soccer.”
“I spend the rest of my time with my wife Olivia and my three daughters, Abigail, Sarah, and Grace.”
