Bray spoke at a business luncheon Tuesday afternoon, highlighting past accomplishments and addressing the police services’ present and futures objectives.
A prominent topic of discussion centered around gangs in the city. While he acknowledged Regina isn’t exactly a hotbed for gang activity, it doesn’t mean it’s not a prevalent issue.
“We work with social services, we work with probation services,” he stated. “Different wings of government or community groups that really, I think, help us dig into the gang activity that’s happened.”

Another popular topic surrounded marijuana and dispensaries. As dispensaries are illegal, Bray says they’re being “put on notice.”
“We have some public education to do that,” he says. “Not only with public, but with the owners of the dispensaries to ensure that they understand that. We got investigations going on all the time, but there could be some criminal consequences after this if we find people breaking the law.”
