Message from the Chair
Sault Ste. Marie Police Services Board
The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service is an important community partner with a significant social responsibility. As a primary function, the service works to keep our community and people in it safe. In furtherance of this goal, the service will continue to work with partners across our community to acknowledge and address the underlining socioeconomic and mental health challenges that can lead to crime. In this respect, the Sault Ste. Marie Police Services Board believes our service can be a leader in our province and the 2019 to 2021 Strategic Business Plan outlines our path forward.
The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service will provide professional and quality police services through a combination of both traditional and community policing. Through the development of dynamic partnerships in our community and the furthering of a supportive and diverse workplace at the service, our officers and staff will work with our community to address the root causes of crime and advance the social well-being of our community.
The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service Board would like to thank Chief Stevenson and Deputy Chief MacLachlan, along with our sworn and civilian employees, for continuing to serve with integrity, professionalism, compassion, dedication and courage, in an embodiment of the service's motto: Committed to Excellence in our Community
Message from the Chief
Chief Hugh Stevenson, ED.D.
I am proud to present my first Strategic Plan as the Chief of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service.
Our vision for 2019-2021 is not something we can accomplish alone. “Ensuring Public Safety Through Enforcement, Education and Partnerships” is a shared responsibility among our governance authority, community partners and the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie and Prince Township. I truly believe in maintaining, developing and enhancing relationships and trust among all in our community. This plan outlines four key areas we will focus on over the next several years.
As a Police Service we will be transparent to the people we serve. I will encourage our members to be at the cutting edge of our profession in the way we protect life and property, support crime prevention and educate this community. Most importantly this reinforces the significance of bringing a diverse group of people to the table to help us serve the community more effectively.
The Strategic Plan will also serve as a reminder to our sworn and civilian members that we remain committed to excellence in policing as we work toward improving the quality of life for our friends, families and neighbours.
To protect and enhance the quality of life in the City of Sault Ste. Marie and Prince Township through dynamic partnerships with community members and agencies.
