2017 Budget

I hope you will take a few moments to review the Brockville Police Service 2017 Budget. 

As many are aware, the cost of policing is an issue across Canada.  As municipalities struggle with increased costs in virtually all areas of operation, policing becomes a primary focus.  There are many reasons associated to the costs of policing.  First and foremost is 24 hour service.  As one of the few remaining 24 hour services provided in the City of Brockville we appear expensive when compared to other services.  The fact is that we are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and we never close.  As indicated in past years we have also taken on the role of services that have diminished or have diminished capacity after 5 pm and on weekends.  We become the catch-all for the community of Brockville.  Our focus on youth and the aging population are a couple of community suited needs.  We work with the community, identify what the community wants and implement a program in response.   

Our challenge to you is to review the budget, then review the services provided by the Brockville Police Service.  We think you will be impressed.  Thanks for checking out our website and our 2017 Budget Presentation

Be safe!
