Peel Region is getting its first female Chief of Police. Deputy Chief Jennifer Evans will become Peel’s 6th Chief of Police since 1974, capping a 29 year career with the force. Evans has worked in numerous roles with Peel Police, including more than 8 years on the criminal investigations squad. She’s replacing outgoing Chief Mike Metcalf, who announced this spring he was resigning after 4 decades with the force. Evans will be sworn in next Tuesday.
