Constable Roland Bebinec is the a new addition to the local detachment.
Constable Roland Babinec has now completed his third month living in the Crowsnest Pass and he said that after living here for three months, his experience so far has been a good one.
Babinec was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and moved to Calgary several years ago.
He worked several office jobs before he made the decision to enter the police force, a choice that stemmed from the desire to have more adventure in his career.
Babinec completed his six month training course in Regina, Sask,and was then transferred to the mountains of the Pass around three months ago.
“It’s great to live down here,” said Babinec, who mentioned that he likes to hike and recently received his fishing licence.
Babinec said that he would like to someday work in investigative services, as the type of work in that department seems more exciting.

“There is so much variety in the work and it seems like it would be a good fit for me.”
An average day in the life of Babinec starts with catching up on the Pass looking over files and then to start working on files from the calls that have been recently received. Here in the Pass, these calls are usually driving complaints or reports of theft.
“It’s been a lot of getting to know the area,” he said. “It’s important making a lot of contacts at the beginning.”
Babinec worked through his first Rum Runner Days this year, and he said that it was a fairly calm one to undergo.
“My first Rum Runner Days was fairly quiet,” he said. “We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was not too much trouble.”
Welcome to the Pass, Roland.
