NORTH HURON COUNCIL VOTES TO KEEP THE WINGHAM POLICE SERVICE
3/6/2018 6:27:13 AM
The Wingham Police Service will continue to service the town of Wingham after council voted down an OPP proposal on Monday night.
The OPP attempted to sway council members with a last minute cost proposal update, but it wasn't enough to persuade North Huron council members.
Wingham Police Chief Tim Poole is hoping that council will consider increasing the number of on-duty officers to match the provincial standard, as they currently only have one on-duty officer on at all times, instead of two officers. Wingham is the only local force in Ontario that operates this way.
