Vacancy for appointment

BNPP Joint Board of Police Commissioners


The Police Act provides for the establishment of the BNPP Joint Board of Police Commissioners. The Board is responsible for providing regional policing services to the municipalities of Beresford, Nigadoo, Petit-Rocher and Pointe-Verte, as well as the two Local Service Districts (LSD) of Petit-Rocher Nord and Petit-Rocher Sud. The Board ensures adequate strategic planning, police coverage, and financial management for the entire regional police service.

The BNPP Joint Board of Police Commissioners consists of the mayor of each municipality or a counsellor, designated by resolution of the Municipal Council, who must ordinarily reside in the municipality they are representing; one member appointed by the Minister of Public Safety who ordinarily resides in the region; and the Chief of Police as an ex-officio, non-voting member.


Current position to be filled:
The Policing Standards and Contract Management Branch of the Department of Public Safety is now accepting expressions of interest from eligible individuals who have interest in serving on the Board. Expressions of interest are invited to fill this position but may also be used to fill future vacancies.


Qualifications Commitment:
Considerations for board composition are as follows:

  • Members must be ordinarily residents in the regions serviced by the Board.
  • Members must be able to operate in French.
  • Ideally, members should possess an interest in policing matters, and experience in a broad range of subjects that might include law, accounting, management, marketing, communications, or human resources.
  • Members should also have the personal attributes necessary to function as part of a board and be representative of the region they serve.

The composition of Board must reflect the gender and linguistic representation, as well as the cultural diversity of the region.


Members must be available to prepare for and attend at least six public meetings and six committee meetings a year.

Remuneration for members is $125 per board meeting plus mileage. Travel and accommodation expenses are reimbursed according to established rates and guidelines to a maximum of $125 per half day. In addition, Board members receive $30 an hour when the member sits on a committee approved by the Joint Board.


Expressions of interest (via the application form or a resume and a cover letter) may be submitted by e-mail or regular mail with details of education, work experience, volunteerism, board/committee experience, and contact information (telephone number, civic address and e-mail address).
