Oak Bay Police Board Vacancy

The Oak Bay Police Board will have one vacancy in January 2022. The provincial government is seeking to appoint an individual to fill the vacancy and is currently taking applications from interested candidates. The deadline to apply is November 4, 2021.

While previous experience as a director is not required, it is important that candidates understand the roles and responsibilities of a member of a board and have the necessary experience and demonstrated skills to enable them to contribute to board decision-making and oversight. Appointees require a balance of financial, labour relations, legal and general management expertise, along with well-developed analytical skills and judgment.

The Board develops the annual budget, appoints the Chief Constable and is responsible for the establishment of standards, guidelines and policies for the administration of the Department.  The Board also deals with public complaints and internal labour relations issues.

New Board members are appointed to one-year initial terms in order to assess their fit and suitability.  Public appointments to the Board are limited to a maximum term of 6 years.

Board members are volunteers, and as such, are not remunerated. Members are reimbursed for any reasonable travelling and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred in discharging duties as a board member.

Interested candidates can apply for this opportunity through the BC Government website.
