Four people charged under the Reopening Ontario Act

The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Services Board has retained the services of Waterhouse Executive Search to lead the recruitment process for the next Chief of Police for the Kawartha Lakes Police Service.

The Board is looking for a modern, community-oriented leader to replace Chief Mark Mitchell, who is retiring in 2024. Waterhouse Executive Search has over 20 years of recruitment experience, and extensive knowledge in the field of policing in Ontario.

The Police Services Board is excited to be working with Waterhouse to recruit a new Chief of Police and continue to fulfil the Service’s vision of leading our community towards a safer tomorrow.

    I wish the public could have some input in this hire, maybe through our freely elected Council representatives. There is no guarantee these days, with so much foreign interference targeting municipalities, that we won’t, even inadvertently, hire someone beholden to foreign interests. It would be nice for the public to at least have the option of being part of the process, to give some input and/or feedback.
