The Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police is proud to present
Superintendent Robert G. Mills of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Superintendent Mills began his policing career with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 1980. Throughout his varied postings and assignments, Bob became known to his employees and peers as a gentleman committed to the profession of policing.
Bob’s leadership of the Division’s Operational Command Center in 2000 was pivotal in bringing employees through a particularly tragic and trying time. Following that, he developed a newly-formed Operations Strategy Branch. This branch provided sound strategic and evidence-based advice to the Division’s senior management by drawing on the skills and expertise of civilian employees.
Superintendent Mills, through a collaborative and strategic approach, also played a key role in building a strong relationship with the RCMP’s Provincial Contract Partner. Saskatchewan’s Deputy Minister of Corrections and Policing acknowledged Bob’s role in assisting the policing community with identifying plans and solutions with respect to economics of policing, prisoner transport, and disclosure.
Bob is currently a sessional lecturer teaching a class on Community Policing at the University of Regina. He led the development and implementation of a research partnership between “F” Division and the universities in Saskatchewan. Dr. Rick Ruddell of the University of Regina commended Bob for the work he has done to break down barriers between traditional police organizations and academic institutions.
Throughout his career, Bob has been a quiet steady trailblazer who has dedicated himself to developing others. The Saskatchewan Chiefs of Police are proud to recognize Superintendent Robert Mills with the Leadership Award.
