Joe Canepa, former Commissioner of Police, passed away from natural causes on Sunday. He was 79-years-old.
Mr Canepa was Commissioner when three IRA suspects were shot dead in 1988. He also led the RGP through one of its most difficult moments in recent history; the smuggling riots in the summer of 1995. He retired from the RGP in 1997.
