Job Former Chief Constable

Chief Constable Stockton was the chief of police of Toronto, Canada in 1895.

Stockton interviewed William Murdoch for a vacant position as an inspector at Station House Three. During the interview, he learned that Murdoch was a Catholic and, though impressed with Murdoch's abilities, decided that Murdoch's faith made him ineligible. He told Thomas Brackenreid to inform Murdoch of his decision ("The Glass Ceiling").

Inspector Brackenreid spoke with Stockton on the Telephone several times during the investigation into the murder of Richard Hartley. Because the investigation centred around the King's Rowing Club Stockton wanted the detectives to use "kid gloves." The rowing club counted most of Toronto's most prominent families as members ("Still Waters").

Stcokton was forced to order Murdoch and Brackenreid to stop their investigation into Henri Gaston's death when it got too close to a secret government defence project under the command of Terrence Meyers ("The Annoying Red Planet").

Stockton was upset that a constable had been killed and he demanded a speedy arrest. He was convinced by Inspector Davis that an innocent man was responsible and wanted that man arrested. Murdoch refused and eventually proved that another constable was the killer. Stockton offered Murdoch an unspecified position with the police in Winnipeg, Canada. Murdoch declined ("The Great Wall"). Eventually, Stockton is succeeded by Chief Constable Giles.

In What Lies Buried, it is revealed that Stockton is suffering from severe memory loss.
