The Halton Regional Police Services Board and Chief Stephen J. Tanner have announced that Deputy Chief Fletcher is retiringfrom the Halton Regional Police Service. The retirement will be effective on or about June 1, 2015.

Deputy Chief Andrew Fletcher has been a proud and dedicated member of the HRPS family for many years, and will in fact be completing his 31st year on June 1, 2015 – at which time he will retire from the Service to take on new challenges and opportunities.

“Andrew has enjoyed and deserved an extremely successful career with the Halton Regional Police Service. He has had the opportunity to work, supervise, or command virtually every aspect of our Police Service. Andrew is one of the most professional and dedicated police officers and people that I have had the opportunity to work with. I/we will greatly miss him here as an important part of our senior command team although I will look forward to working with him in his new role and wish him all the best for continued success,” stated Chief Tanner.

Andrew started as a cadet with the HRPS 31 years ago and in recent years was instrumental in bringing that very successful program back to the police service. Andrew became a Constable soon after and was promoted through the ranks of Sergeant, Staff Sergeant and Inspector where he has performed in a variety of patrol, investigative, support and supervisory roles prior to becoming a Deputy Chief on January 1, 2007. Andrew worked in uniform patrol, criminal investigations, drugs and intelligence, major crimes, and was a member of the Tactical Rescue Unit among other assignments during his varied and successful career here in Halton.

Andrew was involved in many major investigations during his time with our Service, and in senior positions has commanded both the operational and support sides of the organization.

Most recently he has distinguished himself in many ways amongst his peers at the OACP (Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police) and across the province as a leading expert in community mobilization, and as the Chair of the OACP Community Safety and Crime Prevention Committee. Andrew will always be credited with truly spearheading our move here in Halton to Community Mobilization throughout the Service, and just this past January to our integrated Community Mobilization teams.

Andrew has decided to retire from the HRPS although he will be taking on new career challenges and opportunities as he commences his new duties as the next Deputy Chief of Police of the South Simcoe Police Service (just outside of Barrie Ontario).
