In Ontario, every Police Service must have a Police Services Board to provide civilian governance and accountability. The Cornwall  Police Services Board assumes the role of policy direction and administration of policing in our community. Among its many specific duties, the Board determines general organizational objectives and priorities, establishes policies and oversees the ethical conduct of the organization.

Information about the Board

The Board, which oversees the policies, goals and objectives of the Police Service, is comprised of: 

Community Representative:

  • Mrs. Martha Woods

Provincial Appointees:

  • Mr. Michel Payette
  • Mr. William E. Beattie

City Council Appointee

  • Mayor Bernadette Clement
  • Mr. Glen Grant


  • Mrs. Carmen Cousineau

The Board usually meets on the first Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 9:30 a.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Most business is conducted
during the 'open' portion of the meeting to which the public is welcome to attend. An in-camera meeting is held afterwards.
