Halifax Regional Police’s deputy chief has been appointed president of the Nova Scotia Chiefs of Police Association.
Chris McNeil was named to the role last month and will correspond with all members of the association to get their views on mutual issues and will represent their interests in dealings with government, including the Department of Justice.
“I am confident Deputy McNeil will serve the Nova Scotia Chiefs of Police Association very well during his tenure, and represent the interests of all of its members with vigour,” Halifax Regional Police Chief Frank A. Beazley said in a release.
McNeil has been an executive committee member for the past four years, first a secretary then vice-president. He’s been a police officer for the past 27 years.
