Fundy Regional Services Commission Exploring Regional Policing

You might experience some deja-vu upon hearing the Fundy Regional Services Commission is once again exploring the idea of regional policing. 

Executive Director Jack Keir tells CHSJ News this time, the idea is that he would study the cost of expanding the Saint John Police force into other communities and each community can decide if they want to be policed by the S-J-P-D or not.

Quispamsis Mayor Murray Driscoll, who was opposed to the motion, saying this is a road they've already been down and that there is no appetite to move away from what they have now with the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force. Rothesay Mayor Bill Bishop who was also opposed echoing those sentiments, saying they are going around in circles.

However the motion did pass.
