West Shore RCMP have found a new commanding officer, although it’s not clear when he’ll take up his new post.
RCMP Inspector Kevin Violot will take command when he is able to move from his post in the Northwest Territories. He has 31 years with the Mounties and is currently the acting criminal operations officer.
“He is on a quick timeline to take command. That is the hope,” said Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz.
Former West Shore detachment commander Mark Fisher took the job as chief of the Oak Bay Police in July.
