The Windsor Star article, Amherstburg residents will get a referendum on policing after all reported on the positions of Mayoral candidates DiCarlo and Swinton:
Swinton doesn’t think the majority of residents wanted to contract out policing and he’s concerned costs will rise in the long run and the town won’t be able to do anything about it.
“You can’t effectively predict a cost savings on policing needs on a community that’s growing and expanding.”
DiCarlo said the cost of policing was a big issue when he was campaigning for mayor in 2014. He said the service level will remain the same, with all the current Amherstburg officers remaining with the exception of the chief and deputy chief.
