The Board is pleased to announce that they have selected the well-respected firm of Odgers Berndtson as the recruitment firm that will assist the Board in selecting a new Chief of Police.

The team from Odgers will be conducting consultation sessions with internal and external stakeholders.

Following the consultation period, the Chief of Police job posting will be posted through Odgers Berndston the week of July 15. The posting will be live for a month and will be a national search. Following the posting period, Odgers will present the Board with short-listed candidates and interviews will follow. The Board’s goal is to have a candidate selected for the end of September.

The Board is confident that Deputy Chiefs Cunningham and Hiltz will serve the Service and community well by assuming Acting Chief duties during this transitional period.
