Executive Leadership Announcement

Today, I take great pleasure in announcing the appointment of Superintendent Scot Halley as Deputy Chief. He will take on the responsibility of Deputy Chief of Operations, where he will oversee General Patrol, the Duty Office, Special Operations, 911 and Communications, Traffic, Community Relations, and Reports and Records Management.

Deputy Chief Scot Halley was promoted to the rank of Superintendent in June 2016, overseeing branches including Organizational Support, Operational Support, and most recently, Uniform Operations.  
Scot joined the Winnipeg Police Service in 1994 and has worked in various areas of the Service, including General Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Emergency Response Unit, Community Support, Homicide Unit (Cold Case), Organized Crime Unit, Human Resources Division, Street Crime Unit, Tactical Support Team and Canine Unit.
In 2015, Scot was one of three Canadians to graduate from the 260th session of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy (FBINA). He is currently the Vice-President of the Northwest Chapter of the FBINA Associates and has served as the Coordinator of the FBINA Youth Leadership Program since 2016.
Scot is a recipient of the Police Exemplary Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada and a Winnipeg Police Service Commendation. He has served as a member of the Rossbrook House Board of Directors since 2014.
In 1990 Scot received his Bachelor of Arts Degree (English) from the University of Manitoba. He was accepted into the Asper School of Business later that same year, where he pursued his Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree prior to joining the Winnipeg Police Service.
Congratulations, Deputy Chief Halley, and I look forward to working with you as part of the  Executive Management Team.
