New Deputy Chief of Police Selected

Approved by: 1030 - January 18, 2024

The Sault Ste. Marie Police Services Board (SSMPSB) is proud to announce, Inspector Brent Duguay has been selected as the next Deputy Chief of Police for the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service (SSMPS).

An official swearing in ceremony will take place later this month.

“It is a great honour to be named Deputy Chief,” says Inspector Brent Duguay. “I want to thank the Police Services Board, and Chief Hugh Stevenson for trusting me with this responsibility. I am truly honoured to be the next Deputy Chief.”

With nearly 30 years of experience with the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service, Inspector Duguay has worked extensively on major investigations, including Joint Forces Operations involving drugs and organized crime with other police agencies across the province.

“We are fortunate to have such an experienced law enforcement professional to promote from within,” says Police Services Board Chair John Bruno. “On behalf of the Board, we congratulate Inspector Duguay on the appointment. We are confident he will partner with Chief Stevenson to continue modernizing the Sault Police and providing community safety for the people of Sault Ste. Marie and Prince Township.”

The current Deputy Chief of Police, Bob MacLachlan, is retiring January 21, 2024.
