Mayor Doug McCallum won election on the campaign promise to create a municipal police force in 2018 and the newly elected city council voted to terminate Surrey's contract with the RCMP. The B.C. government approved the change in February and appointed the board in June to oversee the new police service in Surrey, one of the province's fastest-growing cities. But the process caused a rift in the mayor's own civic political party as three members resigned from the Safe Surrey Coalition last year, citing concerns about costs of the new service and McCallum's approach. A 450-page report by former B.C. attorney general Wally Oppal concluded the shift to a civic police force would increase the operating budget by 10.9 per cent in 2021, taking into account the loss of federal subsidies and achieving wage parity with the Mounties. That's on top of millions of dollars in one-time capital investments Surrey must make in order to set up the new police department that's expected to "go live" on April 1 next year. Oppal's report says Surrey is an outlier as the only municipality in Canada with more than 300,000 residents that doesn't have its own police force, which would allow the city to better adapt to the community's unique needs and growth. Among the first items on the agenda today is a motion to create the Surrey Police Service, followed by committee assignments. The next board meeting is set for Sept. 15. A release from the police board says its nine members are tasked with hiring a chief constable, setting policies, overseeing the service's budget and assuming responsibility for any complaints. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Aug. 6, 2020.

    Orlando 'Vacation Capital' Police Collectors Show

    ORLANDO SHOW STILL A GO as of August 2, 2020 I wanted to give you an update on our Sept. 5, 2020 “Vacation Capital Police Collectors Show”. The show is still a GO. I have been in contact with the hotel and working very closely concerning safety measures in light of COVID-19. The hotel is providing us with a bigger space – actually two rooms – this will allow 12 feet of distance between tables. In addition, we will have hand sanitizer stations at the show entrance. The hotel is strictly following all CDC recommendations for the safely of their guests. Orange County currently has a mandatory mask requirement for people in public, so we are asking you all too please wear a mask at all times. This mandate could change prior to the show. I will keep you updated. I will have a limited number of masks available for anyone who forgets. The show hours have been changed and will start an hour earlier – at 8 a.m. – and close at 3 p.m. Set up will begin at 630 a.m. With these new measures, the hotel is asking me for the full payment for the ballroom, 30 days prior to the show. If you have reserved a table, please send your full amount as soon as possible to confirm. Doing so will allow us to proceed in organizing an awesome and safe show. The last day to reserve hotel rooms is Aug. 5. We have already doubled the confirmed room reservations from last year. That’s a very good sign of the attendance we are expecting. The rate is good for 3 days prior to the show and 3 days after. Free parking for all. We are excited to continue the show despite the challenges. We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

On Wednesday evening, town council decided to make the change to the OPP after two separate cost estimates. The mayor says the decision was inevitable, and cheaper, with a projected savings of $6 million over the next 10 years. Several other smaller communities in the province have made a similar move, switching to the OPP, including Midland and Orangeville. The shift to the OPP would take place in February 2021 with officers based out of the Primrose Detachment.

  8. Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders is stepping down source: https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/toronto-police-chief-mark-saunders-is-stepping-down-1.4974664 TORONTO -- Mark Saunders is stepping down from his role as the chief of the Toronto Police Service. Saunders, who has held the top title at the service since April 2015, will mark his last day in the role on July 31. “Here I am after serving 37 plus years of what I believe to be the greatest law enforcement agency in the world. I’ve watched this organization grow, learn, listen and serve the greatest, fourth-largest city in the continent and the most diverse city in the world,” Saunders said at a news conference held at Toronto Police Headquarters on Monday afternoon. “I look forward to being a full-time dad and a full-time husband that’s not an exhausted by-product who walks through the door at the end of the day.” n August 2019, following Toronto’s most deadly year ever, which included two shocking incidents, the North York van attack and a mass shooting on the Danforth, Saunders’ contract as chief of the service was extended until April 30, 2021. That was the second time in the past 40 years that the service’s chief would serve more than a single term. Prior to being named the first-ever Black chief, Saunders worked in several units of the Toronto Police Service, including homicide, professional standards and emergency task force. While announcing his resignation and admitting that not everything about his tenure was perfect, Saunders thanked his family, fellow members of the service, the media, and the people of Toronto for their continued support. “I want to thank the citizens and communities of Toronto for their partnerships you’ve created for us in keeping Toronto safe,” he said. “You’re responsible for solving most of the cases that were presented in the city, you’re responsible for working us through the good, the bad, the indifferent.” “You’re the ones who came to the table to keep us in-check whenever it was necessary.” When asked why he was leaving his position now, he stated that he wasn’t going to leave until he had “satisfied the men and women of the organization.” “As chief, the expiry date is when you retire, when your contract is up, or it’s when you finish a project or a mission,” Saunders said, adding that he believes the service is “in a safe spot.” “As a dad, as Mark Saunders, I can pick any time, but in my 37 plus years, I’ve never had an August off and this will be the first time that I will have an August off with my family and I’m not sure what to do with it yet, but I’m looking forward to it.” ‘I wanted one project’: Body-worn cameras coming to TPS Last week, Saunders said George Floyd’s life being taken at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis spoke to the value of why members of the Toronto Police Service need to be equipped with body-worn cameras. Body-worn cameras have been absent on the vests of police officers in Toronto for several years now. A pilot project that saw 100 front-line officers be equipped with the cameras for 11 months ended in April 2016. This past weekend, in the wake of Floyd’s death, thousands of protestors participated in anti-Black racism rallies in downtown Toronto, and across the world. Saunders joined protestors near Yonge and College streets on Friday and took a knee. Saunders said that he previously thought he would finish the year off as police chief, but after the weekend protests he received many calls for him to “go another five years,” and he said he “had to put it to a stop.” In putting a stop to it, Saunders made his announcement on Monday and noted that his “one project” of officers being equipped with body-worn cameras will hopefully be fulfilled by July. “I wanted one project and by all accounts I think we might have an opportunity to fulfill that and I’ll tell you, I’ll be the happiest chief in the world if that does happen in July but there are a whole host of reasons and at the end of the day, it’s a whole bunch of things but it’s going to be good to be a dad.” Earlier on Monday, Toronto Mayor John Tory said some officers could begin wearing body cameras as early as this summer. He said the matter will likely be discussed at next month’s Toronto Police Services Board meeting. Saunders on his proudest moment When asked for his greatest achievement as police chief and his biggest regret, Saunders touted his work on the service’s transformational taskforce. “I can’t think of any regrets, everything has become an opportunity, but I will say that the one thing that I thought was great was the transformational taskforce,” he said. “If you go back to when it started and what the concept of the transformational taskforce, it was giving the community equal ownership of what the Toronto Police Service should look like, no one has ever done that before.” He added that it was also one of his “most uncomfortable moments.” “Half of my best players and half of the community, different lenses, different colours, different mindsets and we built from a blank page. That has never been done before but now you fast forward to today, look at where we’re at, this is exactly where we are, this is what the community is demanding.” What’s next for Saunders? After taking some time off to spend quality time with his family, Saunders said he plans to continue working for the city of Toronto for free on issues close to his heart. “When I say retired, doesn’t mean that I’m done,” he said. “There are things that I want to do for the city of Toronto for free. I think I come with a lot of knowledge that can help in keeping the city safe.” “I see a lot of young black boys getting killed by young black boys and law enforcement deals with those symptoms and I want to help the cure for the disease and I think I have a ton of knowledge that can help keep governments in-check and do the right thing to make sure that we get it right.” Saunders underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. He said his health was not a factor in this decision. ‘Has always worked to protect the city’ In the wake of his resignation announcement, Toronto Mayor John Tory and Ontario Premier Doug Ford thanked Saunders for his hard work and offered him well-wishes in the future. “On behalf of all Toronto residents, I want to thank Chief Saunders for his exemplary service,” Tory said. “He has led the women and men of the Toronto Police Service for the last five years – working to modernize the service and establishing community-focusing policing.” “I wish him all the best in his retirement from the Toronto Police Service. We will continue to see the benefits of his pioneering work on modernization and culture change for years to come.” Ford called Saunders a “tremendous leader and a true champion for the Toronto community.” “I want to give a big thank you to Saunders for his service,” the premier said. “Together we took on many challenges and I want to thank him for his partnership and friendship.” “I wish him the best.”
