Treaty 3 Police Service Faces Tough Times

The Treaty 3 Police Service is caught in between a rock and a hard place.

Recently the Police Services Board made the decision to change conditions of employment for officers.

Deputy Chief of Police in charge of operations Terry Armstrong says the service doesn't have the means to raise taxes for funding.

The arbitration was to allow officers of 8 or more years to receive the same compensation as their O.P.P counterparts.

Armstrong also says that the force had to cut 7 officer positions from the officers recruit fund that was only funded for 5 years.
