Mayor Michael Fougere introduced Evan Bray as Regina’s new Police Chief on Wednesday morning.
Replacing former Chief of Police Troy Hagen, Evan Bray has served 21-years with the Regina Police Service.
Prior to his time with the police service Bray held various positions with the Regina Police Association and has a background in broadcasting, which he hopes will help him succeed in his new role.
“I’ve had a ton of opportunity to work with all different types of community groups. Whether they be government level, grass-roots community level, or anything in between. And that to me is always exciting, that’s the essence of policing,” said Bray.
One of the first things Bray will be looking at as Chief of Police is an internal review of the organization to make sure the service is running efficiently.
“I believe in the people that work here. I think we need to make sure as a management team and as a police service that we’re deploying them as we should.”
Bray will also be looking at the recent rise in firearm-related incidents in Regina.
