Effective December 21st, 2023, after 38 years of service, Kingston Police Chief Antje McNeely announced her upcoming retirement from Kingston Police.
In an announcement McNeely said, “Throughout my tenure as Chief, I have been committed to the promotion of equity, diversity and inclusion as well as member wellness within our organization.”
Chair of the Kingston Police Services Board Jarrod Stearns says, “She has loyally served the people of Kingston and has been a champion of diversity and equality, both internally and externally. She has been a strong advocate for disadvantaged persons and underrepresented groups. Chief McNeely will be remembered for reaching out and collaborating with external agencies and initiatives, like Kingston Speaks Inclusion, to address inequities and the root causes of crime.”
McNeely was Deputy Chief for 7 years, and served as Chief of Police for 5 years.
Utilities Kingston says that R.W. Tomlinson Limited is expected to start restoration works on the water and sewer project on Front Road and King Street West today, with scheduled completion by December. The project will restart in the spring of 2023. The plans will include feedback received from community members at an information that took place in September. A second information session will be held following resumption of the project to provide community members with an update and timelines. According to a release from Utilities Kingston, this project will redirect sewage from the Portsmouth Pumping Station and interconnect a trunk water main. It is expected to save energy, reduce sewer overflows, create capacity to support downtown development, and improve operations and system performance.
