Delta’s new police chief sworn in

DELTA —  Delta’s new police chief, Neil Dubord, was sworn in during a special ceremony Monday evening at municipal hall.

"We’re absolutely delighted to have chief elect Dubord coming to Delta as our chief of police," Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said. "He comes with a vast amount of experience."

The 53-year-old White Rock resident has for the past three years been in charge of the Transit Police, a force of similar size to Delta’s.

The Delta Police has 187 police officers and the Transit Police, 167.

Dubord’s predecessor, Jim Cessford, was Delta’s chief constable for 22 years before he retired in February.

Dubord has more than 28 years policing experience. He served 25 years with the Edmonton Police and as its deputy chief in charge of the community policing bureau distinguished himself in front-line policing, tactical and strategic development and critical incident command.

He also implemented the Community Action Teams in Edmonton to reduce violent crime and holds an MA in Leadership and Training from Royal Roads University, a PhD in Business Management from Arizona’s Northcentral University, and has also studied at the Canadian Police College in Ottawa, the University of Virginia in Washington, DC, and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation at Quantico, Virginia.
