DRPS would like to thank Deputy Uday Jaswal for his two years of service as he transitions back to the Ottawa Police Service this fall. The Police Services Board announced the resignation of Deputy Chief Jaswal Wednesday, and he will begin his position as Deputy Chief with Ottawa Police starting in September 2018.
"Deputy Chief Jaswal has been a valuable asset to the Durham Regional Police Service since his arrival two years ago," said Board Chair Randy Wilson. "His leadership and commitment to partnerships earned him the confidence of the community, the trust of the Board, and the respect of the DRPS membership and his presence will be missed. We thank Deputy Chief Jaswal for his contributions and wish him well in his next assignment."
The Board will address the vacancy created by the resignation at its earliest opportunity, in close consultation with Chief Martin.
"Deputy Jaswal has worked tirelessly for us since his arrival and was passionate about the DRPS and its members," said Chief Martin. "I want to thank him for his many contributions and for his vision, drive and energy over these past two years. He did a tremendous job here and always put the best interests of our members at the forefront of everything he did."
The Durham Regional Police Services Board is the civilian governing body of the Police Service. Its responsibilities include establishing objectives for policing in consultation with the Chief of the Police, setting policies for the effective management of the Police Service, and hiring and monitoring the performance of the Chief of Police. The Board consists of seven members, three appointed by the Province of Ontario and four chosen by Regional Council.
