Surrey Police Board looking for ‘forward-thinking, innovative, and contemporary’ police chief

THE Surrey Police Board announced on Thursday that it has launched a nation-wide search for a Chief of Police after months of preparation by the City of Surrey and Waterhouse Executive Search Ltd.
At its inaugural meeting, the Police Board was presented with a comprehensive strategy to identify and recruit a forward-thinking, innovative, and contemporary leader to be the first Surrey Police Service Chief.
“The launch of a brand-new police service at this time in our history presents one of the most exciting and challenging opportunities in Canadian policing in a generation,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum, Chair of the Surrey Police Board. “The successful candidate will work with the Board and community to build a police service that will reflect Surrey’s growth and values.”
The job will be posted on the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the Canadian Association of Police Governance websites, along with the Waterhouse Executive Search and Surrey Police Service websites. The posting closes August 28 at 4 p.m.
