The Cobourg Police Services Board (CPSB) is the civilian body that governs the management of the Police Service. As mandated by the Ontario Police Services Act, the CPSB consists of five members, two appointed by the Province of Ontario and three chosen by Regional Council.

The Board ensures the delivery of adequate and effective policing by appointing members to the Service, working with the Chief in identifying objectives and priorities and by creating policies for everyone to follow. 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: T.B.D.
Two persons appointed by the
Lieutenant Governor in Council:
Gayle Metson
& Margaret Godawa
