Oxford to Consider Replacing RCMP Service

Oxford will consider a proposal from the Town of Amherst to replace the RCMP with an expanded force from the town’s police service.

Mayor Trish Stewart says this is very preliminary but we’ll consider all proposals to save money for our residents.

The mayor and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) met with their counterparts in Amherst who proposed further discussion. Amherst officials conducted a review of their police services and concluded an expanded service might be more cost-effective.

Rachel Jones, Oxford’s CAO, says, “They want to reduce their costs and maximize their efficiency,” a common theme among most municipalities.

Oxford has been asking the RCMP to find ways to reduce the cost to the town. Jones says, “Oxford has the highest policing cost, on a per capita basis, in all of Nova Scotia.”

The Town Council agreed, last night, to continue to a detailed discussion.

Councillor Wade Adshade suggested this will take some time. Adshade says even if they decided today, “We would have to give notice to the RCMP and it could take two years.”

Mayor Stewart says the next step is to invite Amherst to make a presentation to council.

Although the professionalism of the Amherst Police force has improved over the years, it's better off for you folks to stay with the RCMP.

They're much better trained.

I'm an Amherstonian, btw.
