Message from the Chief Constable


Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the New Westminster Police Department.

There are many reasons why someone who loves their job may move to another police department. You could be in search for new opportunities, a home on the coast of British Columbia, or a better fit with a new team of colleagues.

The people who work for this department are truly exceptional. I am honoured to work alongside them and am continually inspired by their dedication, hard work, and compassion. As Chief Constable, I am dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of my team.

I hope you consider applying to work with us. I have worked my entire career at the New Westminster Police Department and am proud to call this city my home. While geographically small, New Westminster is located in the heart of the Metro Vancouver region, which brings with it all the challenges and rewards of policing in a big city. The New Westminster Police Department, and the community it serves, will benefit from your policing experience. You will benefit from all the outstanding qualities that make the New Westminster Police Department a leader in policing.
