Sweeping changes could be coming to the Toronto police service.
A task-force charged with modernising the police service and finding efficiencies within the force are set to present a report to the Toronto Police Services Board tomorrow.
Recommendations make in the leaked document include the closure of 6 stations in the next two years, a freeze on recruitment and promotions for the next three years and the disbanding of the Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS) by the end of the summer.
It’s also suggested that the report is set to recommend that the city take charge of parking enforcement, the school crossing guard program and life guard programs, while transit patrols would be left to TTC special constables.
The task force was formed by Mayor John Tory in February after the police budget topped $1 billion dollars for the first time ever.
