HALIFAX - The RCMP in Halifax has appointed a 23-year veteran of the force to the position of officer-in-charge.
Supt. Roland Wells was named to the post in January and his promotion to chief superintendent will be formalized later this year.
A statement today says Wells joined the RCMP in 1989, with a posting in New Brunswick and various positions in municipal and rural detachments.
He has been involved in enforcement activity along the U.S. border and in 2010, served as the officer-in-charge of the Atlantic Region Review Services.
Wells was most recently the criminal operations officer for the RCMP in Prince Edward Island.
