About Tim Pettit

Although Tim grew up in Nova Scotia and still refers to it as home, he has lived and worked from coast to coast to coast. Tim joined the RCMP from Inuvik, N.W.T. and, after graduating from Depot in 1993, was posted to Surrey B.C. There he worked General Duties, General Investigation Section, Provincial Auto Theft Task Force and Serious Crime. Tim transferred to Ottawa in 2005, where he worked in the Source Development and Criminal Intelligence Units. In 2011 Tim transferred to London, Ontario, where he worked in Career Development & Resourcing and in late 2013, Tim was elected to the Staff Relations Representative Program for “O” Division. In 2016 Tim transferred to Windsor, Ontario working in Federal Serious and Organized Crime Investigations until being elected as a Board Director for the National Police Federation in the fall of 2019. Tim officially started with the NPF in January 2020.

As an RCMP Member, Tim has always supported the rights and well-being of fellow Members. Whether it was in the role as a Career Development and Resourcing Advisor, Staff Relations Representative, Director of the Slain Peace Officer Fund or as a Director of the NPF, the constant has always been to support his colleagues. Tim has observed the good, the bad and the ugly in his career. Running for election as a Board Director for the National Police Federation was an easy decision and is the start to ensuring meaningful change within the RCMP.  As a Board Director, Tim is now focusing on meaningful change by providing legal and advocacy support services to Members on a host of workplace issues including pay, benefits and resourcing – to name a few.
