“It has been an immense honor [sic] and a privilege to serve my city and my great fortune to lead the police service in the capacity of chief,” Balcaen said in a statement.
“I retire knowing that Brandon is in great hands with an outstanding police service continuing to be committed to community safety with employees who hold strong our values of professionalism, respect and integrity.”
Balcaen submitted his retirement notice to the Brandon Police Board on Tuesday.
