Deputy Police Chief Sloly slammed for police reform comments

Jan 20, 2016 | GTA, NEWS | 0 comments

Toronto’s police union is demanding an investigation into comments by Deputy Chief Peter Sloly, who called for changes in the force. In an online Q&A session last Friday, Sloly was critical of the current policing model employed by the Toronto Police Service, calling it expensive and outdated. He also made the case for more technology use, which he says would use fewer officers and save millions of dollars. The Toronto Police Association blasted Sloly’s remarks, and has asked Police Chief Mark Saunders and the police board to investigate. In response, Mayor John Tory acknowledged that changes need to be made. Last November, the Toronto Police Services Board approved a budget of one-billion dollars, its largest ever. The following month, a KPMG report was released that put forth proposals on how to reduce policing costs.
