The Winnipeg Police Service will have a new chief at the helm when Superintendent Devon Clunis takes over the top position.
The 25-year veteran replaces outgoing Chief Keith McCaskill, who is set to retire on December 9.
“Devon Clunis’ appointment comes at a time of both challenge and change for the Police Service,” said Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Phil Sheegl. “He is a proven leader and a team-builder who cares deeply about our city. I am very pleased to be welcoming Devon as a member of our senior management team – I know that his vision, experience, relationship-building skills and strategic thinking will enable the WPS to help make Winnipeg an even better place to live.”
Clunis began with the police service in 1987 and has served in all major areas of the organization.
He will be sworn in as Winnipeg’s 17th Chief of Police at a ceremony to be held at a later date.
