City police chief Scott Tod will continue in his role for at least another year.
The North Bay Police Services Board has extended his contract by a year, with the possibility of two more.
Chief Tod says he’s looking forward to continuing to serve the people of North Bay for the foreseeable future.
“I am motivated by the dedicated work of our sworn officers and civilian members who help keep our community safe each and every day,” he says. “Over the coming years we, as a Service, will continue our work to enhance our responsiveness and increase community trust; I look forward to my role in that work.”
Richard Stivrins, Chair of the North Bay Police Services Board says the board is glad to see Tod continue in his role.
“Under his leadership, the North Bay Police Service has made significant strides in many key areas from community safety to next generation tech adoption to homelessness and addictions response,” Stivrins says.
Tod became police chief in 2019 after three years as deputy chief.
After several years as an officer in the Canadian Forces, Maritime Command, he joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 1982 and served as Deputy Commissioner, Investigations and Organized Crime for the OPP from 2010 to 2015.
