Deputy Chief Nish Duraiappah Named Chief of Police – Peel Regional Police

The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) is pleased to announce that Deputy Chief Nish Duraiappah has been named Chief of Police of the Peel Regional Police.   The HRPS is grateful for Deputy Duraiappah's service and leadership. His day-to-day approach and the many initiatives that have flourished under his leadership have had such a positive and valued impact on our members, as well as the community he has served for more than 24 years.  We wish to congratulate Deputy Duraiappah on his appointment and wish him continued success in his new role.

Chair Burton of the Halton Regional Police Services Board states:

 "Deputy Chief Nish Duraiappah has been a valuable member of the team responsible for our success here in Halton. He has also been a key leader in public safety throughout Ontario and Canada. We sincerely wish him all the very best in his new role next door in Peel Region."

 Chief Tanner comments:

 "Both personally and on behalf of all members of the HRPS I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Deputy Duraiappah on the great accomplishment in being named the next Chief of Police of the Peel Regional Police. 

Nish has been an incredible member and leader within the Halton Regional Police Service throughout his 25 year career and will be greatly missed. But, at the same time, we wish him all the best in his new role and in all future endeavors which will come his way as he continues as a recognized police leader here at home and across Canada. 

Nish has played an instrumental role in building the strong senior leadership team we have within the HRPS.  That team will continue to meet and exceed our goals to continue to be the safest large municipality in all of Canada as we serve the citizens of Halton. 

I look forward to continuing to work closely with Nish as a neighbouring police chief and partner in building strong community safety and well-being across our two Regions. 

Peel Region will be well served by Nish and his senior management team in Peel in the years to come."
