An impromptu visit by senior RCMP detachment officer Cpl. Leo Martin to the Wadena News was welcome as he brought with him the most recent addition to the Wadena/ Foam Lake Detachment. Constable Larkin Cote started working near the end of June.
Cote is no stranger to the routine, having served previously in Avonlea and Onion Lake.
Originally from Pelly, Sask., Cote took basic training in Wainwright, Alta., for the Armed Forces, then spent seven years on security at the Painted Hand Casino in Yorkton before entering the RCMP.
He likes to “hit the gym” and looks forward to being part of the community, along with his wife Linnea Thompson and their two boys, who will attend Wadena Elementary School this fall.
Welcome to Wadena!
