Peterborough Police Chief Murray Rodd announces retirement

PETERBOROUGH-Peterborough Police Chief Murray Rodd has announced he will retire on June 30th 2018.

Rodd has been the Chief for ten years and has spent 35 years in policing.

“Being a Police Officer is the only job I’ve ever wanted to do,” Rodd said in a press release. “Fifty years ago I was inspired by my Uncle, the Chief of Police of Oshawa at the time, to go into policing as a helping profession. His forage cap has been in my office for my entire term as Chief.”

Rodd went on to say he had a very fulfilling career and was blessed to have the opportunity to serve the public for so many years. “Serving as Chief has been an exceptional experience. I have been privileged to have served under three Chiefs of Police and four Deputy Chiefs.’

He thanked all members, sworn and civilian, for their commitment to duty and cooperation over the last 10 years. “It has been an honour to have worked with some of the best police officers, civilians and volunteers in law enforcement. I am extremely proud of their commitment to serving the communities of Peterborough, Lakefield and Cavan Monaghan.”

He says the success he’s experienced as Chief has been a result of good team work. “As the Chief I’ve approached every aspect of my duties from a team approach, which included three extremely able Deputies and a very talented Executive Team. Together we were able to develop a very effective and efficient Police Service.”

Congratulations Chief Rodd!
