Cobourg Police is taking applications for a new Deputy Chief

The Cobourg Police Services Board (CPSB) has launched a robust hiring process to fill the position of Deputy Chief of the Cobourg Police Service (CPS).

The CPSB maintains the responsibility of hiring for the Deputy Chief and Chief of Police positions. A search for the next Deputy Chief of CPS is driven by a redesign of organizational needs after the recent retirement announcement of Inspector Jeff Sheils.

At today’s board meeting, the CPSB approved a recruitment plan to fill the position. The recruitment plan will be executed by the Cobourg Police Services Board with support from Chief Financial Officer/HR, Roger Ramkissoon.

“The Deputy Chief position has been vacant since Chief VandeGraaf was sworn in as Chief of Police. With Inspector Sheils’ upcoming retirement, we look to find someone with the experience and skills to step into the Deputy Chief role. Filling this position highlights the importance of operational leadership and the support required to advance our commitment to EDII, further embrace our community policing model, and manage competing priorities driven by a new strategic plan,” says Dean Pepper, Chair of the Cobourg Police Services Board.      

The CPSB will be accepting applications until July 16, 2021 with an anticipated start date of January 2022.
