New constable says Houston is beautiful and has great, friendly people

RCMP Constable Aubree Jantzen says she and her daughter came to Houston from Langley looking for a change from the Lower Mainland.

A new RCMP constable recently rolled into town, saying she likes the Houston community.

RCMP Constable Aubree Jantzen says she and her daughter came to Houston from Langley looking for a change.

“I’ve been in the Lower Mainland my entire life… and I heard that Houston was a good community,” said Jantzen.

Asked what she thinks of the town, Jantzen said she’s only been here a few weeks, but it’s nice.

“Great people, friendly community, beautiful area, lots to do,” she said, adding that she’s already toured around some of the logging roads.

“It’s been good. I like it,” she said.

Jantzen says she was born and raised in Vancouver, and took a one year real estate program at the University of B.C. before she decided to switch gears.

After that program, Jantzen took a year-long program at the Justice Institute and got certificates in Youth Corrections, Adult Corrections and in a Deputy Sheriff program, before heading to Regina for RCMP training.

“Policing has always been an interest of mine, and especially with the RCMP, [I like] the opportunity to move around, not be tied in one city or area for an entire career,” she said.

She adds that she also likes all the options within the RCMP force such as major crime.

“There’s just so many different opportunities to venture into,” she said.

Jantzen says she’s been in the RCMP for four and a half years, posted in Langley where she spent her first two years  on the watch and in general duties and her last two years in community policing, working mostly with youth at risk.

Asked about her hobbies, Jantzen said she likes outdoor activities such as quading, camping and downhill skiing in the winter.

“I just enjoy being outdoors,” she said.
