Police Association Still Looking for Commission Support

No response yet from the Police Commission as to whether they will back the Saint John Police Association if it pursues legal action against city council.

Association President Jamie Hachey says council is going against the Police act cutting the police budget by a million dollars.

Commission Chairman Christopher Waldschutz says a written response will be given in a few days and Hachey says he is cautiously optimistic that he will have the commission's support.
He says on top of the uncertainty, there has been little communication between senior management and the rank and file of the police force.
