A former Trail RCMP detachment Staff Sergeant, Nick Romanchuk, has been promoted to the position of Officer in Charge of the Kelowna RCMP.
Romanchuk was stationed in Trail from 2004 to 2008, when he was promoted to the rank of Inspector as the first Officer in Charge of the Kootenay Boundary RCMP and stationed in Nelson.
The Saskatchewan native has been a member of the RCMP for over 22 years, with significant command experience gained over the last 13 years throughout southern British Columbia.
“I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been entrusted with serving the City of Kelowna and surrounding communities as their Chief of Police,” he said in a new release.
“It is a responsibility I do not take lightly.
“It is clear that the people who work at Kelowna Detachment, whether as police officers or in a variety of capacities that support our policing efforts, are extremely dedicated individuals and I look forward to joining with them to continue their efforts at improving the safety of our communities.”
