Durham Regional Police continue to invest in leadership training as another member of the Service has graduated from the prestigious Joseph L. Rotman School of Management.
Inspector Dave Wilson, leader for the Oshawa Community Police Office for the DRPS, is one of 22 senior staff from 15 police agencies across Canada who graduated from the Rotman School of Management’s police-related program at University of Toronto on Saturday, April 28, 2007.
The MBA-style program for police executives was developed as a partnership between the Rotman School of Management and the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police. It is an intensive three-week course with a customized curriculum focusing on leadership and strategy, covering financial management, human resources and communications.
"The Police Leadership Program has been an invaluable experience," said Inspector Wilson. "The Rotman professors have brought a wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm and excitement to the program. I leave here very confident that I will be able to use this knowledge to be an even stronger leader in Durham Regional Police."
The Durham Regional Police Service now has seven graduates from the program, including Civilian Director Giles le Riche, Inspector Tom Cameron, Superintendent Ian Wootton, Superintendent Jim Lockwood, Superintendent Bob Chapman and Deputy Chief Chuck Mercier.
