Chief Drolet Takes On His New Role With SJPF

Wed February 26, 2020

Following an extensive interview process, the Saint John Police Force is pleased to welcome Stephan Drolet into his new role as Chief on Monday, February-24-2020.

“It has been a busy few months moving across the country and getting settled into my new role here in Saint John,” says Drolet. Chief Drolet has served with the RCMP for the past 27 years, spending most of his career in British Columbia.

Drolet just stepped down as the deputy criminal operations officer for the province of B.C. and previously served as the officer in charge of the detachment in Burnaby.

“Over the next few months, I will be meeting with my new colleagues, Police Commission members and staff at City Hall to familiarize myself with my new surroundings,” adds Drolet.

“I want to thank Chief Connell for his time and dedication to the SJPF and the Saint John community during his tenure as Chief,” says Drolet.

A Change of Command ceremony to formally welcome Chief Drolet in his new role will take place in the coming months.

Chief Drolet will be available to the media on Wednesday, March-11-2020 at 10am in the Community Room of the Saint John Police Force Building, 1 Peel Plaza.
