Police Services Board

The Board is responsible for setting policy and working with the police chief to move the police service in the direction as set out in the Smiths Falls Police Services Board Business Plan, in order to achieve the necessary goals and objectives.

The Board does not get involved in the day-to-day operations of the police service.
