Winnipeg Police Deputy Chief Dave Thorne Announces Retirement
After 35 years of service, Winnipeg Police Deputy Chief Dave Thorne is retiring.
Deputy Chief Dave Thorne has been a member of the Winnipeg Police Service since 1981. Promoted to the rank of Deputy Chief in November 2013, he is responsible for Police Operations, which includes the Uniform Operations, Operational Support and Investigative branches of the Service.
He enjoyed a well-rounded career, evenly divided between Uniform Patrol and Criminal Investigations. Deputy Chief Thorne's previous assignments in Criminal Investigations include Commercial Crime, Robbery, Child Abuse and Homicide.  He was also a Forensic Polygraph Examiner and was assigned to the RCMP/ WPS Integrated Proceeds of Crime Unit where he was one of the Team Leaders and the Financial Coordinator for a covert storefront money laundering operation.
Deputy Chief Thorne was promoted to the rank of Inspector in 2004. In 2009 he was promoted to the rank of Superintendent, Uniform Operations. The part of his career that stands out the most, and that he is especially proud of, is that his last 15 years of service have all been connected to Uniform Operations, including serving as a Sergeant, Staff Sergeant and eventually as the Inspector of Division #11 - our Downtown Uniform Division.   
Deputy Chief Thorne has represented our organization with honour and distinction, earning the respect of our partners in the criminal justice, health and social service systems. Our community is stronger due to his collaborative and inclusive efforts.
