He’s come under fire over the last several days over some comments he made last week.
And now it appears, Deputy Police Chief Peter Sloly is on leave.
During an address last week, Sloly talked about the bloated police budget, how cost savings could be achieved through cuts to the number of officers, and how the force could make better use of technology, among other things.
That raised the backs of many, including the head of the police union. Mike McCormack has long called for additional officers.
The Toronto Police Association has filed formal complaints with the Police Services Board and the Ontario Civilian Police Commission.
Sloly’s comments are expected to be discussed at Wednesday’s board meeting, along with the enforcement of unlicensed cabs, and body-worn cameras.
