Providence Police Det. Sgt. Michael Wheeler, a member of the department’s anti-gang unit for 16 years and its leader since April 2005, did not raise a red flag over East Greenwich when he recently spoke to members of F.A.C.E.S. (Family Access to Community Empowerment Services) at the East Greenwich Police Station Community Room.
