Whereas the current Agreement for the Provision of Police Services Under Section 10 of the Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.15 (PSA) between Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Ontario as Represented by the Solicitor General (Ontario) and the Corporation of the Town of Tecumseh will conclude on the earlier of (i) December 31, 2023, or (ii) the date that the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019 (CSPA) comes into force;
And whereas the CSPA has not yet come into force;
And whereas under s. 4(1) of the PSA the Municipality is required to provide adequate and effective police services in accordance with its needs;
And whereas the date that the CSPA will come into force is as yet unknown;
Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Police Services Board recommend to Tecumseh Town Council to enter into an Amending Agreement with Ontario to extend the duration of the current policing contract to conclude on the 31st day of December 2025 (i.e. two years).
