As your Chief of Police, I am so honoured and proud to lead this organization within this community. The City of Greater Sudbury has become home to me and my family. Coming from York Regional Police after 35 plus years in the policing profession, I can honestly say that policing in Northern Ontario is very unique. Where we police is where we call home. We live here, our children grow up here and for many of our members this has always been home. That means we are completely invested in the safety, security and wellness of this community.

As a Police Service we are committed to transparency and continued engagement across the diverse communities we serve – we are your police. We aim to build sustainable, diverse and inclusive networks and partnerships with agencies, organizations and community groups to embrace community input through community engagement.

The Our Shared Commitment to Community Safety and Well-being model emphasizes the importance of not only community engagement, but the importance of innovation and collaborative partnerships while ensuring a survivor-focused approach in everything that we do.

Through our current Strategic Direction, we will focus our efforts on Our Members and Our Inclusive Workplace, Public Trust and Accountability, Collaborative Community Safety and Well-being for Greater Sudbury, and Policing with Excellence and Professionalism.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
