Boyd Merrill , Commander of Holyrood RCMP Detachment
The charm of Newfoundland and Labrador has lured many Atlantic Canadians to our shores, and Boyd Merrill is one of them. Hailing from New Brunswick, Boyd worked his way through university in his home province. He balanced a full-time job as a Correctional Youth Counsellor with studies at UNB, creating a career path that led him to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police more than thirty years ago. Since then Boyd’s work in the community has extended beyond his profession as a police officer, due to his never-ending drive to serve those around him. For him, it doesn’t matter what you do in this life – it only matters what you do for others.
