Sergeant Warren Morrical was formally introduced at Tuesday night's Police Board Meeting. The 10 year veteran of the EPS has been promoted to the position of Sergeant. 

"I think my strongest assets are my experiences," Sgt. Morrical explained who previously was employed as an engineer in the mining sector. "I have a wealth of life experience from before. I was an engineer for a number of years, I worked out of the mine. I've been in this community since 1998. So I know the area, I know the people."

"I have a large amount of skill in terms of supervision and how to get the best out of people."

He added that he is looking forward to his new role. 

"Really it comes down to the challenges. We, as a police service, are in a fantastic position to serve the community around us and ensure their safety. This new role, in my opinion, very much will allow me to participate in that goal."

"This job is the best job in the world. I love the variety, I love the fact that I may, in a given week, spend time instructing firearms, I may spend time dealing with criminal investigations, dealing with simple traffic offenses. No two days are the same."

"It is a tremendous challenge and very enjoyable from day to day."

"I spent about a year in the criminal investigation division back in 2010. I've never been a supervisor in that role so there are some challenges ahead in terms of my own education. I have a great deal of experience in terms of supervising both in my previous career and in this one and I plan on relying on those skills to help me move forward to proceed as best as possible."

His role will be the supervisor of a number of different divisions within the police service. 

"There's never been a fifth sergeant in a position to directly supervise the criminal investigation division, the ident unit, the drug investigation unit, as well as the combined traffic services section. So all of those will end up under my purview. Really, it's not a new developed unit, it's just simply having someone in a position to directly supervise the day to day operations of those specific units."

He added that there were many people who helped him along his path to becoming a sergeant. 

"I couldn't single out a specific person because every single person in this police service, within the Saskatchewan Police College, everyone brings something to the table."

"Every single member in this police service helped me in some way shape or form. Whether it comes from day to day assistance, certainly the supervisors we have right now, I've relied on them in my previous roles to act as a guide in how I treated the community, how I proceeded in my own career."

"I have relied on them and I am hoping that as I move forward that perhaps I can be the same for others coming up."
