The North Bay Police Service Board is preparing for the interview process in their search for a new deputy chief.

On January 15th, Police Chief Shawn Devine officially resigned from his position.  On that same day the board announced that current deputy chief Scott Tod will become the new chief.

It’s been just over a month since that news came out.  No one will comment on any of the current candidates, however, all resumes need to be sent to board chair Dennis O’Connor no later than February 28th at 4 p.m.

“The proposed close for the deputy chief position is the end of february,” stated Police Chief Shawn Devine.

“They are still waiting for applications. I know this morning that the board chair had conversations with his board to put a selection committee together so that is rolling. Short of that, they will have their meetings and they will announce a promotional process will be developed for interviews for candidates which are going to be from outside the organization and inside the organization.”

Chief Devine’s last day on the job is June 30th and the board is hopeful to find a deputy chief candidate well before that.
