About Us

The Halton Police Board is a seven-member board that provides strategic governance to the Halton Regional Police Service. It is a provincially mandated legal entity that operates independently from the Regional or Municipal Council. As such, it is the Board’s responsibility to ensure the residents of Halton Region receive adequate and effective police services following policing standards issued by the Province. In essence, the Board is the trustee of public interest regarding the provision of all police services in the community.

The Board exercises its governance and oversight functions through the development of policies. The Chief of Police reports to and is directly accountable to the Police Services Board for adherence to and compliance with the Board’s policies.

The composition of the Police Services Board is determined by the Police Services Act. Following the population of the Region, the Halton Police Board consists of:

  • The Regional Chair, or if the Regional Chair chooses not to be a member of the Board, another member of the Council appointed by resolution of Council.
  • Two members of Regional Council appointed by resolution of Council.
  • One person appointed by resolution of Regional Council, who is neither a member of the Council nor an employee of the Region.
  • Three persons appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
