Passed    Motion To: Moved by / Motion de: Mayor J. Watson Seconded by / Appuyée par: Councillor E. El-Chantiry WHEREAS combatting the increase in gun violence in Ottawa is a priority for both Ottawa City Council and the Ottawa Police Services Board; and WHEREAS the Ottawa Police Services is completing a three year, 75 new officer hiring plan that will raises our Sworn Officer Complement to 1,380 in 2018; and WHEREAS the Ottawa Police Services Board’s 2018 Budget included a 3-year budget forecast, starting in 2019, that incorporates additional officers in future years; and WHEREAS the growing concern regarding the increase in gun violence across the country has resulted in the announcement of a federal government grant program to help achieve this goal, with funding of $100 million nation-wide anticipated to begin in April 2019; and WHEREAS the Mayor of Ottawa, the Chair of the Ottawa Police Services Board and the Chief of Police have met and agreed that there is a benefit to residents and neighbourhoods experiencing gun violence to begin to hire ten more officers in 2018; and WHEREAS the Chief of Police has advised that October 2018 is anticipated to be the earliest date by which the additional officers could be in place; and WHEREAS the Ottawa Police Services Board will be considering this request for 10 new officers at its meeting of June 25th, 2018, with an anticipated funding pressure for 2018 of $435,000 in part-year compensation and $225,000 in one-time costs for vehicles and equipment, which they will try to cover within their existing resources and with the full-year effect to be included in the 2019 draft budget; and WHEREAS, although City Council is unable to pre-commit a future Council with respect to its budget, Council can support the hiring of 10 new officers in 2018; and WHEREAS the General Manager of Corporate Services and City Treasurer has advised that, should Council wish to support the hiring of 10 new officers in 2018, the best approach to address any of the 2018 pressure that can not be absorbed by the Police is for the City to continue to backstop any shortfalls in the approved Ottawa Police Services Board budget as part of the annual Disposition report; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that City Council approve the increased budget pressure for the Ottawa Police Services Board to accelerate the hiring of 10 new police officers in 2018, as described in this motion, subject to approval by the Ottawa Police Services Board.
