Toronto Police Service to recruit 80 new uniform police constables in 2017

India Blooms News Service | 12 Aug 2017

Toronto, Aug 12 (IBNS): Toronto police service will recruit 80 new police constables in 2017 to support community centric policing and diversity.

A review of the current establishment of Communications Operators has been done to ensure adequate staffing levels to support public safety.

The Toronto Police Services Board (TPSB),  Toronto Police Service (TPS) and the Toronto Police Association (TPA) are aligned on the mission of community safety and the modernization objectives as articulated in “The Way Forward” report, and committed to an engagement and implementation process that is collaborative.

Discussions during a recently held series of meetings resulted in an approach that addresses business continuity during the transition to modernization. This plan, supported by evidence and data, continues to place public safety and the health and well-being of our members as our primary focus.

A decision has also been taken to have uniform and civilian supervisory acting assignments, and confirming members in the rank where roles are deemed “operationally critical".

Toronto police service said: "We realize that the path to modernization is not a straight line. We wish to thank our dedicated members who are committed to making a difference in the lives of the people in this city. We would also like to thank the people of Toronto for your ongoing support and feedback."
A review has been made of divisional staffing levels to ensure that acceptable staffing levels are being met and, subject to the collective agreement, make overtime available to divisions when there is a shortfall.
