Police Board Budget Committee to Hold Hybrid Meeting on Tuesday, December 12, 2023 at 2:30PM
TORONTO: The Toronto Police Services Board’s Budget Committee will hold a meeting on Tuesday December 12, 2023 from 2:30PM. The meeting will proceed as a hybrid meeting.
At its meeting of July 27, 2023, the Board established a Budget Committee for the purpose of reviewing the Toronto Police Service’s 2024 capital, operating, and the Parking Enforcement Unit’s budget requests as well as the Board’s 2024 operating budget request, as they develop.
At the meeting of December 12, the Budget Committee will discuss the Service’s full draft 2024 budget request. Due to the recent Government of Ontario announcement of a new funding deal with the City of Toronto (Ontario and Toronto Reach a New Deal | Ontario Newsroom), additional time is necessary for the Service to assess any impacts so as to provide the Budget Committee with the most fulsome and accurate information possible. The report detailing the budget request will be made publicly available as soon as possible ahead of the Budget Committee meeting.
The agenda for the December 12, 2023 meeting is available on the Board’s website at: https://www.tpsb.ca/meetings.
Information about the budget and budget process can be found here: Toronto Police Services Board - Budget (tpsb.ca)
