The Port Hope Police Service has received $252,940.26 in funding through the ministry of the solicitor general‘s community safety and policing grant program, to be released over three years. The province established the CSP grant program to support police services/boards in combatting crime and keeping Ontario communities safe.
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our community,“ said David Piccini, MPP for Northumberland – Peterborough South. “This investment will help ensure that the Port Hope Police Service has the tools and resources they need to address the issues that matter most.”
“I am very happy to announce the support given to the Port Hope Police Service through the community safety and policing grant. This significant funding provided by the province of Ontario will allow the Port Hope Police Service to continue to deliver professional policing services to our community and focus on the safety priorities laid out in our business plan” said Police Chief Bryant Wood.
Chair of the Port Hope Police Services Board, Jeff Gilmer, is thrilled to receive this support “the PHPSB is happy to be receiving this funding which will help us support the goals laid out in our 2021–2023 strategic plan which focusses on collaborative community safety, core policing, and organizational excellence. We think the government of Ontario for these funds.”
