Esquimalt voice needed on Victoria police board

Longtime board member stepping down at the end of June

A volunteer is needed to represent the Township of Esquimalt on the Victoria Police Board.

The successful applicant will be required to serve for at least one year on the nine-member team, and provide up to 30 hours a month.

The board provides civilian oversight to the Victoria Police Department and is responsible for developing the department budget, setting out the municipal police service’s objectives and responding to service and policy complaints.

The volunteer’s term could be extended for up to six years. Esquimalt’s current appointee, Kathy Mick, will retire after six years in the role on June 30.

Applicants must be Esquimalt residents. They should have experience in business, financial management, administration and community development, as well understand governance boards.

To apply by the June 8 deadline, call Esquimalt corporate officer Anja Nurvo 250-414-7135. For details, visit esquimalt.ca.
