There has been a major staffing turnover in the St. Anne Police Department.
According to Marc Robichaud, Chief of Police the last few months has seen a significant change in staffing.
Sergeant Randy Chudyk retired and has been replaced by Sergeant Doug Davis. Davis comes to Ste. Anne with over 35 years of experience with the Ontario Provincial Police.
Constable Jonathan Goertzen and Constable Kelly Dayment have also moved on. Goertzen took a position with the Morden Police and Dayment joined the Ottawa Police force. They have been replaced by Cadet Constable Jordon Taman and Cadet Constable Bradley Wiebe who both graduated from the Ontario police College.
“They will be working with regular officers for 4 months during their field training,” Robidaud explained.
Three new officers are also in training including Cadet Constable Mark Legal, Cadet Constable Dylan Hill and Cadet Constable Scott Badiuk.
“Once these officers return from training they will be in a casual role with the organization to assess their abilities and determine who will move into full time positions,” Robidaud added. “Funding for the training of these new officers has been
supplied by the Department of Justice.”
In addition, the St. Anne Police Department has hired Constable Tyler Delaronde has been hired into a full time position.
