During a Change of Command ceremony held on October 1, 2013, Roger Brown, a 32-year veteran of the RCMP was named the 29th Commanding Officer of the RCMP in New Brunswick. The former Commanding Officer of the RCMP Academy (Depot Division) in Saskatchewan takes over command of the RCMP in New Brunswick from Assistant Commissioner Wayne Lang, who has retired from the RCMP.

Born in Newfoundland, A/Commr. Brown joined the RCMP in 1980 with his first posting in general duty policing in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec. A/Commr. Brown has also worked in Newfoundland, National Headquarters in Ottawa, at the RCMP Academy as an instructor in the 1990's, and was the Commanding Officer of the RCMP Academy for five years prior to moving to New Brunswick. During the Change of Command, A/Commr. Brown spoke of the successes in policing in New Brunswick and how to keep that momentum moving forward.

"Those results come from the education and enforcement efforts of not just the police but the community as well. This is the direction we need to continue to go in. We have a role and responsibility as the RCMP, but we need our partners also engaged with law enforcement and in the safety of our communities," stated A/Commr. Brown. "I'm excited to be here working alongside the men and women of the RCMP in New Brunswick to make our province an even safer place to live."

More than 1,000 people are employed by the RCMP in New Brunswick. The Force operates under four policing districts providing policing services to 71 percent of New Brunswick's population and covering more than 98 percent of the province's land area.
