Nelson Police Board Director Mike McIndoe recently retired from the Nelson Police Board after six years of service as the Municipal Representative on the Board. 

Mayor John Dooley, Chair of the Nelson Police Board accepted McIndoe’s resignation during the recent meeting of the board.

The role of the Board is to establish the Nelson Police Department and to provide general direction to this department, in accordance with relevant legislation and in response to community needs.

Municipal Police Boards are created independently from municipal councils and from the provincial government. This removes boards from partisan council and politics, as well as recognizes that both the municipality and the province have legitimate interests in municipal policing.

The Board is required under the Police Act, Part 5, s. 26(4), to determine the priorities, goals and objectives of the Department each year, in consultation with the Chief Constable.
