Brantford Police Change of Command

Several hundred persons attended the Change of Command Ceremony recognizing the end of Chief Nelson’s term and the beginning of Chief Davis’s. There was a cross-section of police officers from a number of detachments, members of the Brantford Police Services Board,

current and past elected officials, Citizens on Patrol, Auxillary Officers, Victim Services Brant, dignitaries from surrounding communities including Six Nations of the Grand and of course family.

The ceremony dates back over the century as the former Chief Geoff Nelson thanked the community, said goodbye to his previous team and welcomes the new leadership team of Chief Rob Davis and Deputy Chief Jason Saunders.

Sergeant Michael Reid piped the dignitaries in and out of the Grand Ballroom of the recently opened TownePlace Suites by Marriot.

Mike Montour offered the invocation and Jaime Boyington sang the National anthem. 

The Inspection of the Honour Guard led by Chief Geoff Nelson and Police Board Chair Vincent Bucci escorted Chief Designate Robert Davis to meet some of his current staff and other detachment retirees.

Mayor Kevin Davis explained his pleasure in the selection of a respected and decorated officer to lead the service going forward on behalf of the citizens of Brantford and welcomed him formally. 

The Honourable Justice Gethin Edward offered the Administration of the Service Oath to Chief Davis and Deputy Chief Saunders followed by the passing of the Ceremonial Sword from Chief Nelson to Chair Bucci and then to Chief Davis.

Both the new Chief and Deputy Chief spoke with pride and humility about the task they had accepted and their promise to serve the community to keep the citizens safe.

Welcome Chief Davis. We look forward to your leadership.

The Chiefs share a hug.
