Chief of Police Jonathan Bergen has heard community members who have called for a Prince Albert Police Service Women’s Commission to once again be put into place to help guide our police service, and is asking for expressions of interest from local residents.
While some participants have been identified already, Chief Bergen is hoping more residents will join this new committee to act as special advisors to the Chief of Police. Expressions of interest are welcome from the women of Prince Albert and will be invited to join based on various considerations. The Prince Albert Police Service Women’s Commission will be reflective of our city and represent the many intersections of our community.
“Women are compassionate and resilient leaders and I value their advice on issues affecting policing,” Chief Bergen said. “I have had the opportunity to work with many great leaders throughout my nearly 24-year career in Prince Albert, and many of those leaders being women. This is an opportunity to hear ideas and perspectives that can influence our direction and build on our efforts to strengthen relationships and I appreciate the opportunity to continue learning as part of my role. ”
Women who are interested in joining The Prince Albert Police Service Women’s Commission as a special advisor to the Chief of Police are asked to submit a letter outlining their experience and interest in participating on the committee.
Expressions of interest can be emailed directly to Chief Jonathan Bergen at [email protected]. Chief Bergen is also available to speak with residents who would like to ask questions or find out more about this opportunity.
The last PAPS women’s commission operated approximately four years ago.
