Police Chief Sylvie Hauth will be retiring in June 2023.

THUNDER BAY -- Thunder Bay's police chief announced she's stepping down after 30 years in policing.

Sylvie Hauth, on Tuesday, June 14, gave the Thunder Bay Police Services Board a notice of her intent to retire on June 14, 2023, stating in a release, she wanted to provide the board with ample notice regarding her employment contract as chief.

She hopes the early notice will provide adequate time for the board to initiate a recruitment and succession planning process for her replacement.

"I remain committed to my role as chief and will do everything I can to ensure a proper transition takes place with the newly appointed chief in 2023," Hauth said in a release.

"I have been both a witness to and an active part of the history of our Police Service since 1993. Along the way, I have had the privilege of serving with sworn and civilian members who continue to devote their lives to the service of this community."

Hauth added she has dedicated herself to organizational change within the service in a collaborative, consistent and transparent way.

"I can say with confidence that the Thunder Bay Police Service will continue to evolve thanks to the people who remain focused on serving and protecting all members of this great community."
