The Board may give orders or directions, but only to the Chief and not to any other member of the Service.
The Board is not allowed to direct the Chief with respect to specific operational decisions or with respect to the day-to-day operation of the Service.
The Act requires that the Board consist of:
|Head of Council:||Mayor Gil Brocanier|
|Member of Council:||Debra McCarthy|
|Person Appointed By Council:||Bryan Baxter (Chair)|
|Two persons appointed by the
Lieutenant Governor in Council:

Cobourg Police Services Board Members
Mayor Gil Brocanier
Born in Scotland, I moved to Cobourg at the age of 4 years old. I have been active in the community, coaching and managing many rep sport teams. Ultimate I became involved in municipal politics through the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and along with my 26 years of Management experience with an international food company, I used this background as a stepping stone to my 15 years in municipal politics.
