The Ministry of the Solicitor General is requesting public and stakeholder input on a proposed regulation related to the amounts payable by municipalities for policing from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
Subsection 64(1) of the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019 as amended by the Strengthening Safety and Modernizing Justice Act, 2023, provides that a municipality in the area for which the Commissioner has policing responsibility shall pay the Minister of Finance for the policing and court security that the Commissioner of the OPP provides, in the amount and the manner provided by the regulations.
The proposed regulation would establish the framework for determining the amounts payable by municipalities for policing and court security rendered by the OPP. It sets out the calculation methodology and payment requirements that municipalities need to adhere to when remitting funds for the policing and court security provided by the Commissioner.
The Ministry of the Solicitor General is seeking comments until September 11, 2023.
