The provincial government is being asked by Ontario's chiefs of police to change the rules.
Top police officials want new authority to decide whether an officer who is suspected of a serious offense should be suspended with pay or with no pay.
It wouldn't matter if the officer was on duty or off-duty at the time of the alleged offense.
As it stands now, chiefs have no option but to suspend with pay.
The Police Association of Ontario, representing the various police unions says this is not reasonable and that chief's should not have sole discretion in this matter.
Association acting President Dan Axford says if there is going to be a change they want an independent third-party to be able to review any decision to suspend without pay.
