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.
Giles le Riche, a Chartered Accountant and Director of Business Services 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 8, 2006. le Riche currently leads a number of DRP departments including Facilities, Financial Services, Fleet, Quartermasters and Corporate Planning.
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.
“It was an honour and a privilege to be chosen by my colleagues to attend this program of study and collaborative learning with senior police leaders from across Canada,” says le Riche. “I enjoyed the formal curriculum, but even more than that, I enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the other 22 participants and to share their experiences in meeting the challenges of policing in Canada today.”
The Durham Regional Police Service now has six graduates from the program, including Inspector Tom Cameron, Superintendent Ian Wootton, Superintendent Jim Lockwood, Superintendent Bob Chapman and Deputy Chief Chuck Mercier.
