PUBLIC CONSULTATION – CHIEF OF POLICE RECRUITMENT
THUNDER BAY, ON, August 19, 2022 — The Thunder Bay Police Services Board would like your feedback

the public’s thoughts on the following questions in the survey:

community and the Service itself will also provide input to the Chief recruitment process.
