Obscenely high and unsustainable policing costs. OPP bills are destroying communities its officers are supposed to protect. Apparent self-interest is cloaked in the guise of public safety needs. Where is the political outrage while OPP costs continue to climb? Who is going to bring policing costs in this province under control?

OPP officers, civilians employees get wage increase over four-year contract

TORONTO — Ontario Provincial Police officers and civilians employees with the force will see their salaries increase under a new four-year contract reached through arbitration.

Officers will receive an approximate two per cent raise per year over the life of contract.

Civilians working for the service will receive approximately a one per cent wage increase each year over the same term.

The wage increase was awarded by an arbitrator late last month, with the term ranging from Jan. 1, 2019 to Dec. 31, 2022.

The arbitration decision also eliminates any annual or per visit cap for coverage of psychological or social worker services.

The contract comes as the province says it plans to cut the overall OPP budget by about $46 million this year.
