Former RCMP officer Rene Wells joins G4S Canada

FORT MCMURRAY, AB, June 27, 2013 /CNW/ - G4S Canada is pleased to announce 
that Rene Wells has joined G4S Canada as the District Manager for the Fort 
McMurray branch. In his new role, Rene is fully accountable for all operations 
and financial matters, including meeting budgeted targets, business 
administration, industrial and labour relations, training, and customer 
service for all clients served from the branch. 
Prior to joining G4S, Rene spent 30 years with the RCMP, where he served in a 
number of functions and duties in many communities throughout Alberta and the 
Northwest Territories. He received his commission and promotion to Inspector 
in 2007 and transferred to Fort McMurray as part of the Senior Management Team 
at Wood Buffalo Detachment, where he led and supported the work activities of 
180 police officers and 70 Municipal Employees. He also led staff in the 
annual completion of risk analyses of operations at four detachments, 
implemented Quality Assurance processes, and developed Standard Operating

Rene left the RCMP in 2009 and joined the Regional Municipality of Wood 
Buffalo as their Director of Emergency Management, a department he created. 
The department underwent rapid growth, quickly expanding to integrate three 
branches, and ultimately consisted of 128 municipal employees and Bylaw 
Officers. Rene managed the department through the creation of a comprehensive 
Municipal Emergency Management Plan, delivered cost-savings and effective 
service delivery by developing and maintaining annual operating budgets, and 
coordinated the development and passage of new municipal legislation governing 
the taxi and limousine sector.
