There’s a new deputy police chief in Halton following a nationwide search.
And he’s been with the service for 22 years.
The Halton Police Board (HPB) announced Supt. Roger Wilkie has been promoted to senior command.
He’s serving alongside deputy chief Nish Duraiappah.
“The [Halton Police Services] Board looks forward to working with deputy chief Wilkie to address the key issues of concern to our citizens and ensuring that the Region of Halton remains the safest large municipality in all of Canada,” said Oakville Mayor and HPSB chairman Rob Burton.
Wilkie (in the centre) replaces outgoing deputy Carol Crowe, who recently retired (she’s still #WCW material though).
He’s served in uniform patrol, criminal investigations, drug enforcement, as a district commander, and most recently as the commander of human resources, training and the emergency services unit.
Wilkie played a key leadership role in the development of the community safety and well-being plan for the Region of Halton.
