Chief Kimberley Greenwood

Chief Greenwood started her policing career in 1981 with the Toronto Police Service and worked in a variety of positions within Divisional Policing, Detective Operations, Human Resources, Command, and Professional Standards.

During her time as Chief of the Barrie Police Service, Chief Greenwood served as President of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and Vice President of Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. She is also Chair of the Canadian Police Knowledge Network, a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and past Chair of the Coalition of Children, Youth and Family, and sits on the Board of Governors Georgian College.

The Barrie Police Services Board is proud of her leadership and contributions to the Canadian Framework for Collaborative Police Response on Sexual Violence, the National Framework for Collaborative Police Action on Intimate Partner Violence, Community Safety and Well-being Planning Committee, the development of Community Justice Centres, the creation of the Police Leadership Competency Framework, Telus Community Board, and the Collaborate Barrie Situation Table.

Chief Greenwood is also a strong supporter of Special Olympics Canada, participating in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Runs and readily jumping into the frigid waters of Kempenfelt Bay every winter in support of the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.

“I am truly honoured and grateful to have had the opportunity to lead the Barrie Police Service for the past nine years, working alongside the dedicated members of our Service,” said Chief Greenwood. “I also would like to thank the Barrie community, Chair Ferguson, and members of the Board for their support and trust over my tenure. I am confident that the members of the Barrie Police Service will continue to deliver exceptional policing services to the City of Barrie.”

About the Child & Youth Advocacy Centre

The Child & Youth Advocacy Centre Simcoe/Muskoka (CYAC) is a child & youth-friendly space where police, child protection, medical, mental health, court and victim support professionals work together to provide focused services to young people aged 3 to 24 years who have been victimized by physical, sexual and emotional abuse and/or domestic violence.

Our Centres offer a safe and neutral place for young people to tell their story, when they are ready. We honour their bravery by fostering a hopeful and healing-centered, evidence based and unbiased approach to conducting forensic interviews, medical evaluations and access to trauma-informed counselling services. We also provide canine assisted therapeutic interventions with our accredited facility dogs Moose & Beacon.

Imparting hope to children, youth and families impacted by abuse and violence is important, transformative work and our AMAZING multidisciplinary team is willing to take the lead in helping to restore justice, safety, hope and healing for impacted young people and their caregivers in Simcoe County and Muskoka, but we need your help.

Thank you for joining us this evening to honour Chief Kimberley Greenwood’s career, and the significant impact she has had on helping young people in our community.

Thank you!

Thank you to our generous supporters and partners!
