MOOSE JAW – Moose Jaw police have announced Richard Bourassa will be the new chief of police starting on October 7th.
Bourassa is currently the director of Court Security for the Ministry of Justice; prior to that job he was a member of the Regina Police force for nearly 30 years.
“This is a double homecoming for me: a return to the community in which I grew up, and a return to policing”, said Bourassa. “It is exciting and an honour to be a part of this outstanding organization. I look forward to serving with the dedicated women and men of the Moose Jaw Police Service as we move forward and work collaboratively with the community to keep Moose Jaw a safe, inclusive and vibrant City,” added Bourassa.
“We are looking forward to having Mr. Bourassa as a part of our team,” said Mayor Deb Higgins, Chair of the Moose Jaw Board of Police Commissioners. “He has experience as a police executive and as a senior government leader that will enhance our community’s police service.”
Bourassa plans to call Moose jaw home while serving as police chief.
