Saint John Board of Police Commissioners

The Saint John Board of Police Commissioners is the governance authority for the Police Force. The role of the Board is to establish a vision and actionable objectives for the community, to provide oversight (including complaints) and to ensure accountability in the application of Police resources to accomplish the objectives.

The Saint John Board of Police Commissioners has a responsibility under the Police Act to “provide and maintain an adequate police force” and to advise Common Council accordingly, so the municipality can budget the necessary money. In determining what constitutes an adequate police force, the Board (in consultation with the Chief of Police) has established priorities and objectives.
