Applications Invited

Mayor and Council will soon be considering applicants for appointment to serve as the Municipal Representative on the Delta Police Board. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply.

The Delta Police Board is mandated by the Police Act to provide civilian governance, accountability and oversight of the Delta Police Department. The Police Board also acts as a support mechanism and facilitator of the Chief Constable. The Board ensures that the direction of the Police Department is consistent with community expectations.

The Delta Police Board is comprised of the Mayor, five persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council and one person appointed by Delta City Council, the Municipal Representative. Delta Council is currently seeking to fill the Municipal Representative position for a term commencing July 2018. Meetings of the Police Board are held on a monthly basis, with the exception of July and August which are scheduled at the Call of the Chair. Meeting times are during regular office hours, and are typically 3 to 4 hours in duration. In addition members are also expected to attend Committee meetings, conferences, and public events.

If you are interested in being appointed to the Delta Police Board, please submit a brief resume and covering letter indicating why you would like to serve, and any relevant knowledge and experience you may have. The review process for potential appointees includes the undertaking of a complete personal profile and criminal record check.

Initial appointments are usually for a one-year term, although members may be re-appointed to serve up to a maximum of six consecutive years. Submissions received will only be used for the purpose of selecting the Municipal Representative and are protected under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
