Showdown looming

A showdown is looming over VicPD’s budget with Chief Jamie Graham pushing for more money rather than department-wide cost-cutting measures. Every year, Graham asks for millions in additional funding rather than imposing the standard 20 per cent cut his fellow Canadian ‘Top Cops’ are making.

Other police forces in North America have been able to reduce costs through such measures. Everybody else is making sacrifices, so why do taxpayers continue to see the police unwilling to make any?
