Oak Bay Police Board Announces Chief Constable Mark Fisher’s Retirement

The Oak Bay Police Board announced yesterday that Chief Constable Mark Fisher has provided his notice of retirement effective May 31, 2024. Chief Fisher was appointed as Chief Constable in September 2022, previously serving as the Deputy Chief Constable from 2020 and Chief Constable from 2011 until 2014.

Chief Fisher has over 33 years of policing experience, including service as Officer in Charge of the Westshore RCMP, Officer in Charge of the Nanaimo RCMP, RCMP Liaison Officer to the Province working on justice reform initiatives, and Commanding Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP.

“Serving as the Chief Constable of the Oak Bay Police Department has been a very rewarding experience and I am proud of the changes we have made over the past several years to build a culture of excellence in community policing. The level of support we receive from our residents, the Police Board, and our community leaders makes this a great place to work. While recent health challenges have caused me to reconsider priorities and retire earlier than planned, those challenges are manageable, and I look forward to a healthy retirement. I am very proud of our employees and the great work they do and will continue to do. It is a special community and I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work here.”

“Oak Bay is lucky to have had Chief Constable Fisher serve this community not once, but twice in this role,” said Chair Murdoch. “Throughout his time in Oak Bay, Chief Fisher has demonstrated exceptional leadership both inside the department and in the community. Chief Fisher has always focused on developing a strong community policing model, and his contributions will positively impact Oak Bay for years to come. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
