Chief Mike Boyd
Chief Mike Boyd joined the Edmonton Police Service on January 1, 2006 with
35 years of policing behind him.
Although his police career involved working in uniform and plainclothes
areas, the majority of his time was spent in investigative branches and the
fields of police professionalism, ethics and race relations. Chief Boyd's
commitment to intelligence-led policing, combating organized crime, and
improving problem-solving techniques has remained strong over the years.
He has been recognized with numerous national and international
awards including his investiture as Commander of the Order of Merit of the
Police Forces by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson,
Governor General of Canada in 2004.
It's been over two years since Chief Boyd joined the Edmonton Police
Service, and his strong leadership has become evident to those within the
Service as well as those from across the community. He is an innovator. He
is a problem solver. He is a community champion.
Chief Boyd is as focused on developing better methods and technologies to
solve crime and reduce victimization as he is to building relationships
through community policing. He is the epitome of an experienced,
professional, ethical, passionate and confident leader who is attuned to
the needs of his community.
