Breaking news: no change in HRM policing.

Arrangement to use both RCMP and Halifax Regional Police stands


After two days of closed door meetings, Halifax city council has decided to make no change in the policing arrangements for HRM, mayor Peter Kelly has announced.

The Halifax Police Department will continue to police in the urban areas, while the city will continue to contract with the RCMP for policing services in rural and suburban areas.

Kelly would not disclose the vote on the issue, but did promise to release various documents related to the discussion. Those should arrive momentarily, and I'll post them here as soon as I get them.
