Police board to discuss the outsourcing of parking enforcement

It is one item on the agenda for Thursday's meeting

The Toronto Police Services Board will meet on Thursday and will discuss the possibility of outsourcing parking enforcement.

This is following a motion made at the city's budget committee meeting in December.

Police Chief Bill Blair will be asked to study how easily that change could be implemented and just how much it would cost. That report would come back to the board in March.

Board chair Alok Mukherjee says they will inform the city of the report's findings afterwards.

In 2012, two parking enforcement officers made the Sunshine List. One service manager earned $127,199.

    First outsourcing, then quotas. Toronto drivers won't know what him them until it's too late. It will be like London, England where drivers get parking tickets after having an accident and they're trapped in their cars.

    I wonder if one of them was the officer that issued the most tickets. If so I might suggest he deserves it because he worked the long hours and worked smartly. Although I hate getting tickets I actually admire the guy's work attitude.

    That attitude is lacking by the majority of civil servants. It also shows how useless socialism is. This guy was incentivized to work harder and smarter.

    They should throw away the union seniority book and focus instead on compensating for REAL results.
