Mayor Drew Dilkens and the WPS Board announces Chief Frederick accepts 17 month extension as Chief of Windsor Police Service.

Mayor Drew Dilkens and members of the city’s police services board announced Frederick’s 17-month work extension earlier this week.

Dilkens explained they wanted “the continuity” of Frederick’s leadership as nearby Amherstburg weighs the merits of Windsor’s bid to take over the town’s policing, and implement that takeover if it’s approved.

Frederick started as a cadet with Windsor Police in 1984 and was named chief in October 2012.
