City Q18: 20 Questions for Langley City Council candidates

 

Dave Hall – No, but the problem is not with the “formula” but rather with the extra funding burdens of integrated teams for which Langley City does not receive, or necessitate, full value for its percentage of contribution. Also the City never completely fills its full complement of officers for a variety of Human Resources allocation reasons including leaves and secondments. As well the Langley City allocation formula has little to do with the negotiated wages that are in the hands of the federal government and come in at far higher than CPI levels.

Miriam Marshall – Yes. We have amongst the highest police to resident ratio (1:502) in the province.

Nathan Pachal – Yes. The City of Langley has about 1 police officer for every 500 citizens. This is the highest ratio in Metro Vancouver. The City is receiving its fair share.

Carla Robin – Not Sure. I need to do a thorough review of the policing service agreement between the two to see how our needs are being and not being met. $10Million per year on policing is a big chunk of the budget and the City’s needs have not been met in several areas of safety and crime.
