Van­cou­ver: Re­tir­ing Van­cou­ver Po­lice Chief Jim Chu has re­ceived a new pro­vin­cial hon­our in recog­ni­tion of his decades of dis­tin­guished ser­vice: the first com­mis­sion is­sued to a mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cer in B.C. Chu, who has served with the depart­ment for 36 years and led it for the last seven and a half, met the cri­te­ria and qual­i­fi­ca­tions set out in the new po­lice of­fi­cer com­mis­sions reg­u­la­tion, which are:

• An ex­em­plary ser­vice record.

• 10 or more years of ser­vice in B.C.

• At least a bac­calau­re­ate or mas­ter’s de­gree or equiv­a­lent, or the rank of in­spec­tor or higher for at least four years.

• The B.C. direc­tor of Po­lice Ser­vices, a qual­i­fy­ing su­per­vi­sor or po­lice board’s rec­om­men­da­tion for a com­mis­sion. Gov­ern­ment an­tic­i­pates is­su­ing sev­eral more com­mis­sions later this year, once other se­nior of­fi­cers have been +rec­om­mended and their el­i­gi­bil­ity is con­firmed.
