Justice Minister Felix Collins announced today the appointments of Bill Janes and Ab Singleton to the permanent positions of deputy chiefs within the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.
"I am pleased to welcome these two highly qualified men to the positions of deputy chief with the RNC," Collins said. "The RNC is a highly respected police force, thanks to the professionalism and competence of its members. These two individuals will no doubt bring their collective years of experience to their new positions."
The appointments were made following a comprehensive selection process which included assessment of education, training and related experience, written and oral presentations and interviews with a selection board. Other factors considered include professional excellence, community awareness and appropriate personal characteristics such as a reputation for integrity and fairness. Seven applicants participated in the selection process.
There are two deputy chief positions at the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary - Bill Janes will be assigned to the criminal operations side of the RNC, while Ab Singleton will oversee patrol operations.
Janes has been a member of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary since 1985, and was most recently the inspector in charge of the RNC Training Section. He has a background in patrol, operational support and the Criminal Investigation Division (CID). He has served as Commander of both the Tactics and Rescue Unit and the Public Order Unit. He has received extensive training through the Canadian Police College, Ontario Police College, Canadian Emergency Preparedness College and Memorial University's Gardiner Centre. He is currently chair of the Community Investment Committee of the United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Singleton has been a member of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary since 1980 and has served in both Labrador and the Northeast Avalon. Having held the rank of inspector for the last 13 years, he has served as the officer in charge of crimes against persons, professional standards, training, operational support, communications and was an integral part of the implementation of the current information management system. While his most recent role prior to this appointment was the officer in charge of the Public Order Unit, he also has extensive management training from the Canadian Police College, Ontario Police College and Memorial University's Gardiner Centre. He also sits on the Justice Minister's Committee on Violence Against Women.
"I am extremely pleased with these appointments to the rank of deputy chief," said RNC Chief Robert Johnston. "Both officers have a great deal of experience and respect within, not only our organization, but also within the communities that they serve."
