Norquay recommended as police board's first director

  • Print

A former provincial deputy minister is recommended to be the first executive director of the new Winnipeg Police Board.

Don Norquay is the choice of the police board’s search committee and he will be formally recommended at the board’s meeting Tuesday.

"We’re pleased to have Don Norquay, who has extensive experience in government policy from his time as a deputy minister," Scott Fielding, chair of the police board and a member of the search committee, said.

Norquay was the last deputy minister of Water Stewardship before that provincial government department was eliminated in the wake of the 2011 flood.

Norquay left the government in August 2013.

A release from the city states that Norquay has over 28 years of public sector experience, including stints as chairman of the Manitoba Motor Transport Board and the Manitoba Taxicab Board.

The police board is the new public body overseeing the Winnipeg Police Service. The board’s executive director is responsible for managing the board’s day-to-day activities and providing advice.
