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.
