Message from the Chair

I am honoured and excited to serve in this new role of Chair of the Hanover Police Services Board.  I want to thank past chair, Don Smith for his leadership and years of dedicated service. 

Our police service enjoys a high level of support in the community and deservedly so.  Under the leadership of Chief Knoll, our officers have been working collaboratively with residents to keep our community safe.  I have learned that having a safe and secure community is not simply the job of the police.  Without the eyes, ears and cooperation of community members, the job would be very difficult.  For that reason, I invite you to call HPS (519-364-2411) if you see something concerning, suspicious or simply doesn’t look right.

I am proud of our police service.  You will find our officers at community events, walking the beat or riding bicycles along the trails.  I know I feel a stronger sense of security when I see our officers in the community and have the chance to wave at them or have a chat.

Thank you again for supporting our police service and ultimately, our community.

Selwyn “Buck” Hicks

Chair, Hanover Police Services Board
