On Monday evening, December 14th, 2015, upon the occasion of the City of Nelson’s Annual Reception of Council, the Nelson Police Board announced the name of the individual who will serve as Nelson’s twenty-first Chief Constable. At this time it is my sincere pleasure to announce to the members of this police service that, effective January 29th, 2016 at 4 p.m.; Deputy Chief Constable Paul Daniel Burkart will be the individual who will bear that distinction. In my personal opinion, Paul was the perfect selection to take on this challenging role, given his tenure with this organization, his love of this department and the community we serve, and his demonstrated knowledge, skill and abilities.
Please join me in congratulating Paul and in wishing him the very best of luck in the years to come.
