Proposed 2015 Policing Costs

In understanding costs related to policing, Lanark Highlands contracts policing from the OPP. At present, approximately 85% of costs are related to salaries. The Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) negotiates with the Provincial Government in determining OPP salaries. Costs related to individual municipalities are, at present, calculated by the number of officers per municipality which is generally determined by the calls for service within the municipality. At present, Lanark Highlands enjoys one of the lowest rates in policing in Lanark County.

In the fall of 2013 a new OPP Billing Reform Process was proposed that will provide cost relief for some municipalities while smaller (generally rural) jurisdictions are likely to experience large overall policing costs with no increase in service.

Lanark Highlands Council, as well as the Police Services Board, have engaged in dialogue with other municipalities in opposition of the proposed new billing reform put forth by the OPP and Provincial Government.

A resolution was passed on March 25th, 2014 by Lanark Highlands Council and forwarded to the Provincial Government outlining the Township’s opposition.
