Keynote Speaker:
 
David Martin introduced our keynote speaker, Scott Gillbert, the new Chief of Police at Peterborough Police Services.
 
Scott Gilbert is in his 38th year of Police Services. He comes to Peterborough from Toronto, where he was Unit Commander of 52 Division in downtown Toronto. Scott's area of specialty include Criminal Investigation and Child Abuse. 
 
Scott was humbled to take the Oath of Office, first in 1980 when he was sworn in as an officer, and again-- just recently -- when he was sworn in as Peterborough's new Chief of Police.
 
The Peterborough Police Services motto is "Professional - Friendly - Helpful". Scott drew a parallel between that motto and the Rotary 4-Way Test.
 
 
The Police Services budget in Peterborough is $28M, not far from his 52 Division budget of $32M.
 
Scott spoke of the transition from Toronto to Peterborough and his belief that connecting with community is the key to success. The Peterborough Police Force requires officer to participate in community involvement,
 
Scott and his family take possession of their home in October. Scott and his wife have 5 adult children in their 20's. It will be a busy household with 9 adults, 2 dogs and a cat, Everyone is happy and honoured to begin settling in to Peterborough.
 
Welcome, Scott and enjoy the train ride at the Zoo!
 
Janet McLeod thanked Scott  for speaking today.
 
Next week’s meeting is Club Assembly, with President-Elect Rino Andreoli stepping in for President, Brian Prentice.
