1 comment to Q03 : The cost of police, fire and emergency services

  • The Hamilton Police have an annual budget of approximately 130 million dollars, however they are not subject to an annual external audit. Smaller organizations such as the Hamilton Public Library are subject to annual external audits. Would it not be wise to have an external auditor review police finances to identify potential efficiencies and to ensure cash reserves are appropriately invested to generate revenues to lessen the burden on taxpayers? What duplication of administrative services exist that could be handled by existing City Hall employees? Councillors sitting on the Police Services Board should be looking out for taxpayers. How is it that these issues have remained unaddressed for so long?
