WHEREAS a constant and unified approach to mutual aid and operational assistance is necessary to meet these increased demands, and
WHEREAS police leaders in Ontario recognize the need for multi-service preparedness and cooperation for all significant demands, including but not limited to, political, legal, social , and environmental exigencies.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police calls on the Provincial and/or Federal Government, as the case may be, to support financially police service engaged directly or indirectly with public safety requirements beyond the capacity of police services requiring assistance.
