City of Thunder Bay
Position: Chief of Police
With a resident population of just under 110,000, Thunder Bay is the largest city in Northwestern Ontario and a hub for people accessing medical and health care, cultural and recreational activities, employment, and/or attending school. It is located on the traditional territory of the Ojibwa people of Fort William First Nation, signatory to the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850 with many visiting and relocating to the City from remote First Nations Communities. There are also citizens who identify as Metis.
The Thunder Bay Police Services Board is now seeking to appoint a Chief whose leadership will inspire the trust and confidence of the Service and the community. An experienced and respected law enforcement executive, you will motivate and guide a service of over 300 sworn and civilian members. Working with the community, staff, the Association and the Board, you will enhance the credibility of the Service. You will be visible in the community, partnering with agencies, social service providers and the community at large, to provide coordinated solutions to issues of concern. You will bring to this crucial role a distinguished record of police leadership, combined with an understanding of modern management and a commitment to crime prevention.
Superior judgment and an openness to new ideas will be key in managing complex issues and relationships, both internally and externally. You will be a compelling spokesperson for the Service, inviting dialogue to achieve consensus on the challenging issues facing the Service and the community. “Lived experience” with northern communities and Aboriginal populations would be highly valued. Above all, you will be an enthusiastic and persuasive leader who inspires excellence and accountability as the Service moves forward.
