The Peel Police Services Board has elected a new chair.

At its January meeting, the board selected Ron Chatha to serve as its chair for 2022.

“Having served as Chair of the Peel Police Services Board previously, I am honoured that my Board colleagues chose once again to place their trust in me and for allowing me the opportunity to serve in this important role,” said Chatha in a statement.

Chatha, who served as Board Chair in 2020 and Vice-Chair in 2021, was reappointed as the board’s provincial representative for a second consecutive three-year term.

Chatha has been a realtor since 2008 and is currently working for a real estate firm in Peel. 

He currently also serves as a board member for the Peel Children’s Aid Foundation and is also chair of the Committee of Adjustment and Minor Variance for the City of Brampton. 

The board’s previous Chair, Ahmad Attia, has replaced Chatha as vice-chair. 

Attia served as board chair in 2021 and vice-chair in 2020. He was appointed to the Police Services Board in 2019 as the citizen appointee for the Region of Peel.

Ahmad was born and raised in Mississauga, where he and his wife live and raise their three children. He is a businessman and entrepreneur, serving as CEO of Incisive Strategy.

The Peel Police Services Board is the governing body for the Peel Regional Police, which provides police services to Brampton and Mississauga and Pearson International Airport.
