Further to the appointment of Deputy Chief, Eric Girt, to the position of Chief of Police for the Hamilton Police Service, the Board has begun the various steps required to identify and select a new Deputy Chief of Police.  To assist the Board in the selection process, the consulting firm Odgers Berndtson has been engaged. 

An essential first step in the process is to develop an appreciation for the challenges and opportunities facing the Hamilton Police Service today and over the coming years as it relates to the role of Deputy Chief.  This will enable the Board, with the assistance of Odgers Berndtson, to develop a meaningful candidate profile in terms of leadership approach and qualifications.

The Board would like to invite members of the Hamilton community and stakeholders to provide their input into this critical appointment.  A confidential survey has been created by Odgers Berndtson for this purpose.  To access the survey please click here
