New Sherbrooke Police Chief putting officers first

By Gordon Lambie

Pierre Marchand, Sherbrooke’s new chief of police, says his first priority is to check in on the health and wellbeing of his employees.
“I have many projects for the future, but my main focus is to take care of our police officers,” he said, sharing that although he is still settling into his new role after about three weeks on the job, it is important to him to get a sense of where Sherbrooke Police (SPS) stand at this point in the pandemic in terms of general health and wellbeing.
“The pandemic made it such that (officers) had to apply new laws and everyone was angry everywhere,” Marchand said, “We found ourselves saying to patrollers at the end of shifts that were longer and more difficult than usual, ‘okay, go home, don’t talk to anyone, and stay there until it’s time to come back.’”
