Roger Brown


Roger Brown has a storied and impressive career in policing, with almost four decades of experience. After a brief retirement, Chief Brown currently serves at the helm of the Fredericton Police Force. Chief Brown previously held rank of Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP in New Brunswick, and it was during that time that he had to deal with several major issues, including the shale gas protests near Rexton, the murders of three members of the Codiac detachment in Moncton, and the public PTSD struggles and suicide of a member. Chief Brown took the reins at Fredericton Police almost a year after that department lost two officers in a tragic shooting. Chief Brown now speaks around the country about mental health issues: seeking psychological help, PTSD, and the stigma around mental illness. He shares his own story in the hopes of empowering others to seek help, and to help others.
