St. Marys council votes in favour of hiring Stratford Police

St. Marys council has voted to bring the Stratford Police to the Stone Town.

At a public meeting last night council passed a motion to seek approval for the move from the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. The town says the decision was based on the findings of a review of alternative policing options.

St. Marys is currently in the last year of a contract with the Ontario Provincial Police. The town says the Stratford Police proposal offered a number of service level improvements at a reduced cost when compared to the OPP.

It’ll be filing its application to the police commission immediately and is hoping to get an answer within the first quarter of 2017.
