Former Toronto officer replaces retired Charles Bordeleau
Ottawa's new police chief will take command at the end of October.
Peter Sloly's swearing in will take place in a private ceremony Oct. 28, the police services board announced Tuesday. A public change of command ceremony will follow at a later date.
Born in Jamaica, Sloly served with Toronto police for 27 years, winning promotion to deputy chief before resigning in 2016.
After his resignation he was hired as a national security consultant by Deloitte.
He was named top choice to lead the Ottawa Police Service late last month.
