Another Durham Regional Police officer is among the graduates of a prestigious MBA-style course in police leadership at the University of Toronto.
Superintendent Bob Chapman is one of 13 senior officers from 11 police agencies across Canada who graduated from the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, on Friday, May 14, 2004. Chapman is currently head of Regional Operations for the DRP, an area that includes Canine, Air Support, Tactical Support, Traffic Services, 911 Communications and Nuclear Security.
The intensive, four-week program was developed in partnership with the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) to ensure police leaders have the skills to maximize the effectiveness of their departments in a new world of local and international crime activities. Superintendent Chapman was chosen as the valedictorian for the class.
A 25-year veteran of the service, Superintendent Chapman has served the public in many capacities, most recently as the leader of the Oshawa Community Police Officer and as Inspector of Employee Services. Chapman is also very active in the Canadian Army and is currently Director of Land Reserve Mobilization and Personnel Planning.
The Durham Regional Police Service now has four graduates from the program, including Superintendent Ian Wootton, Superintendent Jim Lockwood and Deputy-Chief Chuck Mercier.
