ROLESVILLE — The town of Rolesville has a new chief of police following the promotion of Captain Bobby W. Langston II to the top position. With the force since January 2013, Langston has been serving as interim chief since former Chief Matthew Anderson took a leave of absence in December prior to his official retirement, Sunday.
Langston has been a sworn officer since 1994. Before joining Rolesville’s police department, he served with the Wendell Police Department for 18 years, moving from patrol officer to sergeant, lieutenant to captain. He additionally served twice as interim chief for Wendell.
Langston now lives in Rolesville with his wife and two daughters.
The Rolesville Police Department now has 16 full-time officers in addition to an administrative assistant.
“I am proud to lead and work with such a wonderful group of men and women of the Rolesville Police Department,” Langston said in a written statement Monday. “I look forward to working and creating partnerships with the businesses and citizens in the Rolesville community.”
