“Given his past years as Deputy Chief and Acting Chief, and his extensive police experience spanning over three decades, including serving as Chief of Police of the Brockville Police Service, Chief Fraser has displayed a comprehensive understanding of the integral role that municipal police play in ensuring the safety and well-being of their communities.”

Frasier moved into the role of acting chief following the retirement of former Kingston chief of police, Antje McNeely, in January.

Fraser was the Brockville chief of police before coming to Kingston as deputy chief in October 2021.
