Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Police Service’s (RPS) Board of Police Commissioners has announced its selection for the City’s new Police Chief.
Inspector Evan Bray was selected after a national search was carried out to find the best possible candidate. Inspector Bray has worked in various areas of the police service in his 21 years, including in both front line uniform work and plain clothes sections. He has also held various positions with the Regina Police Association and other professional bodies.
“Inspector Bray has been a fixture in our community for more than 20 years,” said Mayor Michael Fougere, the Board Chair. “He is strong, compassionate, and community-focused, both as a senior officer and a person. He is deeply committed to our city and to helping it become a safer place.”
Inspector Bray’s background in media and communications will serve him well as he works to grow and expand the RPS’ partnerships and crime prevention strategies. Increasing collaborations and partnerships with community organizations will be one of the new Chief’s priorities.
“I believe openness and communication with the public are essential tools when it comes to crime prevention,” said Bray. “My focus throughout my career has been on collaboration and I look forward to taking this approach as we expand our Service’s community partnerships.”
Inspector Bray was unanimously chosen by Board of Police Commission members.
