Police board seeks members

Applications accepted until Nov. 14 for two openings on Saanich Police Board

Interested individuals have until Nov. 14 to submit their applications to serve on the board overseeing Saanich police forces.

The Saanich Police Board is currently advertising for open positions, a volunteer board that “provides independent civilian oversight and governance of the Saanich Police Department, including law enforcement and crime prevention.”

In this role, the board oversees the department’s budget, personnel decisions, collective bargaining, policy complaints related to the department and community relations.

The two positions opened up after two members – Gail Flitton and Chris Pease – announced their retirement from the seven-member board chaired by Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell.

Applicants undergo an extensive screening process including a criminal background check, and successful candidates would assume their duties in early 2017 following provincial appointment.

The term for each appointment is one year and may be renewed up to a maximum of six years.
