Interim Police Chief Todd Rollauer to retire in March

DAN CEARNS, The Standard

DURHAM: Durham Regional Police Service’s (DRPS) Interim Chief, Todd Rollauer, plans to retire from policing after the local Service finds a new Chief.

In a recent press release, the DRPS announced Chief Rollauer had provided them with his retirement notice, which will be effective on March 31st.

“The Board is very grateful for Chief Rollauer’s dedicated service to the Durham Regional Police Service, for more than 35 years,” read a statement from Police Services Board Chair Bobbie Drew. “Chief Rollauer has demonstrated exceptional leadership and integrity over the course of his career, especially over the last two years as Interim Chief of Police, and we wish him continued happiness and success in the future.”

Chief Rollauer took over in September of 2020, following the resignation of Chief Paul Martin. He started his career as a cadet in 1987, and went on to serve as the Officer in Charge of the Nuclear Security Division, Whitby’s Divisional Inspector, the Communications/911 Unit Leader and Deputy Chief.

“I am so grateful to have fulfilled my dream of being a police officer,” Chief Rollauer said in a statement. “I have been fortunate to work with incredible individuals who have positively influenced me over my 35-year career. I have always tried to do my best and represent the Service with professionalism and integrity. While this decision was not easy, it is the right time for me to focus on life outside of policing.”

DRPS expects the new Chief to be selected “early in the new year.” In late August, the Police Services Board announced they had contracted Waterhouse Executive Search, to help them find a new Chief of Police.
