Details

WHEREAS the Provincial Police-Based Victim Services Program provides a valuable operational support service to police across the Province;

AND WHEREAS the Province provides 50% of the program funding to each community, expecting the local governments to provide the other 50%;

AND WHEREAS this voluntary funding model has resulted in funding and service provision gaps and disparity:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the North Central Local Government Association  and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities work with the Province to create a mandatory funding formula for local governments, whose residents benefit from the RCMP-based Victim Services, to fund their portion.
