Media Release: New Member of the Nelson Police Department

Matthew Gregor Caldwell joins the Nelson Police Department after having served with distinction for eight years as a member of the Ottawa Police Service. He is a past resident of Nelson, having attended the Selkirk College “Ski Area Operations and Management” program in 2000. That exposure to our remarkable City established a deep connection with, as well as an appreciation for, all that this community has to offer to an individual as well as to a family.

Upon his departure, he resolved to one day re-establish his roots in the Kootenay region.

Now married, he and his wife Penny look forward to settling in Nelson and raising their two young daughters, Wendy and Taylor, in the “Queen City”. His goal is to passionately build on his past community policing success in Ottawa and to use his significant knowledge, skill and ability for the benefit of the citizens of this community.
