Brandon Police Board

Manitoba municipalities that run a police service are required to have a police board in place, in accordance with the Province of Manitoba’s Police Services Act. The requirement for such boards was mandated by the Provincial Government to improve overall accountability and transparency within municipal police services across Manitoba.

 As per the provincial legislation, the board will be required to meet a minimum of four times a year and will act as the general overseer of the Brandon Police Service, though it will not interfere with the Services’ day-to-day operations. Among the boards’ responsibilities will be the hiring of future police chiefs and working with the Brandon Police Service to set its annual budgets.
