The police force in charge of the disruption of organized crime in this province has a new public face.
Sgt. Bill Whalen, a 23-year-veteran with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. (CFSEU) will take over the role of media relations officer.
Whalen has been involved with some of the most high-profile investigations of the unit, including E-PINTLE, a cocaine conspiracy that included the arrests of Jarrod Bacon and Wayne Scott.
Whalen replaces Sgt. Shinder Kirk, who is retiring after 30 years in policing, six of those as media relations officer with CFSEU.
