“I am confident that the skill set and northern experience that I have gained along the way will serve me well in my new position as Detachment Commander – Superior East Detachment,” states S/Sgt. Loranger.  “I look forward to working with OPP members in Wawa, Chapleau, White River, and Hornepayne – once again.”
