THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Police Services Board (the Board) today formally launched the process to recruit a new Chief of Police. This follows the retirement of former Chief J.P. Levesque.

“In order to ensure that there is widespread input, the Board has launched a confidential survey that is open to all members of the community,” said Jackie Dojack, Chair of the Board. “The Board knows that in order to secure the best person for the job of Chief of Police, it is critical that we understand the views and thoughts of all who are served by the Thunder Bay Police Service.”

This confidential, online survey is an essential first step in the process and will further help the Board develop an appreciation for the challenges and opportunities facing the Thunder Bay Police Service today and over the coming years as it relates to the role of Chief.

To assist the Board in the selection process, the consulting firm Odgers Berndtson has been engaged.

Members of the Thunder Bay community are asked to participate in the confidential survey. To access the survey please go to:

The survey will be open until August 23, 2018.
