He began his policing career in 1987 in the RCMP which saw him work in Québec, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia in the areas of municipal, provincial, aboriginal and federal policing. He also worked nationally as the chief judge and prosecutor of the RCMP’s disciplinary tribunal. First seconded to the United Nations in Haiti as a frontline police officer in 1995, in 2008, he returned as the Deputy Police Commissioner in charge of operations for the entire country. In January 2010, following the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti, he personally led the recovery mission of two Canadian police officers who had perished in the earthquake. In October 2012, after twenty-five years in the RCMP, Jean-Michel retired from the RCMP at the rank of Chief Superintendent to become the fourth chief of police of HRP. During his time in HRP, he reoriented the senior ranks of the organization and spearheaded the development and eventual refresh of a 10-year Strategic Plan anchored in evidenced- based policing approaches. He was also involved in the community in numerous initiatives including The Salvation Army Advisory Board and the United Way Halifax Board of Directors. In 2014 and 2015, he was the co-chair for the United Way’s Charitable Workplace Campaign, helping to raise more than $12 million dollars. Engaged in the Canadian policing community, he is a director on the Board of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and a director on the Canadian Police Knowledge Network (CPKN). He has two degrees, one in political science and economics from McGill University and another in law from Université Laval in Québec City. He has published several works on international and national police-related topics, including organized crime, Internet child pornography, human rights, the rule of law in Haiti, aboriginal law and the use of human sources in policing. He has also lectured extensively on leadership and modern police management, with emphasis on dealing with problem employees, unexpected events, the legal obligations of the employer, law enforcement sustainability, mental health and wellness in policing. Jean-Michel’s interests vary from reading and writing to cycling and hockey as a Hockey Canada Level III referee. He is married with three children aged 32, 25 and 15 as well as two dogs. He is currently writing a book of memoirs and lessons in leadership and complexity expected to be completed by 2021.
