Executive Leadership Announcement
It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Superintendent Danny Smyth as Deputy Chief of Investigative Services. This newly created position stems from the tremendous growth in personnel and responsibilities over the past fifteen years.


Deputy Chief Smyth has been a member of the Winnipeg Police Service since 1986. He is a second generation police officer, following his father Stan Smyth into the profession. 
During his career Deputy Chief Smyth has worked in a number of areas of the Police Service including Uniform Operations and covert investigations in both the Vice Unit and Surveillance Unit.
In 2005, he was promoted to the senior rank of Inspector where he played key roles in the establishment of a full-time Tactical Support Team, and the Street Crime Unit.  He also oversaw police operations in the south end of Winnipeg.
In 2012, Deputy Chief Smyth was promoted to the rank of Superintendent where he oversaw the Investigations branch of the Service. This included Homicide, Major Crimes, Organized Crime and the Forensic, Intelligence and Technology Division.  His administrative, operational, and investigative skills are vast and diverse. 
Deputy Chief Smyth is known as someone who enjoys the challenge of new opportunities and embraces change wholeheartedly. He achieved a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1983, and then in 2006 received a Master's Degree in Organizational Management. 
Deputy Chief Smyth is also member of a number of professional organizations and was on the Faculty of the University of Winnipeg until 2014 where he taught in the Criminal Justice Department.
I look forward to working with Deputy Chief Smyth in this role as part of the Executive Management Team.
