In Ontario, every Police Service must have a Police Services Board to provide civilian governance and accountability. The Cornwall  Police Services Board assumes the role of policy direction and administration of policing in our community. Among its many specific duties, the Board determines general organizational objectives and priorities, establishes policies and oversees the ethical conduct of the organization.

About the Board

The Board, which oversees the policies, goals and objectives of the police service, is comprised of: 

Community Representative:

  • Mr. Stephen Scott

Provincial Appointees:

  • Mr. Michel Payette (Chair of the Board)

  • Ms. Amanda Brisson

City Council Appointee

  • Mayor Justin Towndale

  • Mr. Maurice Dupelle (Vice-Chair of the Board)


  • Ms. Diane Brown


The Board usually meets on the first Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 9:30 a.m. in Salon B of the Cornwall Civic Complex (100 Water Street, Cornwall, ON). Most business is conducted during the 'open' portion of the meeting to which the public is welcome to attend. An in-camera meeting is held afterwards.
