“I’m extremely humbled as a small-town chief to be receiving this award from my peers.” 

That is the reaction from Marc Robichaud, Ste. Anne Police Chief, after picking up the Outstanding Service Award from the Manitoba Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP). 

This award is given by the Association to a member that has made significant contributions to the Chiefs of Police Association and policing in Manitoba. 

During Robichaud’s tenure as President of the Association, he was instrumental in developing its first Business Plan (2020-2023); hiring its first Executive Director in 2019; laying the foundation for its first Annual Report; developing the website and magazine; and sponsorship program. 

Robichaud was also influential as a direct liaison between the MACP, the Provincial/Federal governments, committees and organizations. His leadership has provided the guidance, support and enthusiasm to improve and develop the MACP into an efficient and innovative not-for-profit business, showcasing many initiatives to improve and promote the highest standards of ethics and professional policing practice in Manitoba. 

Robichaud began his career in law enforcement in the late 1980's, serving as an auxiliary police officer. He moved into the role of a regular police member in the early 1990's. Nearly 15 years ago, he became the chief with Ste. Anne Police.
