Quispamsis Not Interested In More Regional Policing

While the city throws its support behind the idea to increase regional policing, an outlying town isn't as keen on the concept.

Quispamsis Mayor Murray Driscoll tells CHSJ News they already work with the city on a slew of projects, and they'll continue to collaborate. But beyond that, the town has no desire to combine forces.

 Driscoll says their crime rate is down, at a cost that's affordable. He says amalgamation  would only increase their costs.

He says they've already found efficiencies, they're not duplicating services and bringing up police regionalization time and time again achieves very little.
