New Contract For South Simcoe Police

Four-year deal

South Simcoe Police Services Board and the South Simcoe Police Association have signed a new collective agreement – a four-year deal that includes a 1.9 per cent average salary increase and increased psychological service benefits.

“We’re proud of the hard work our dedicated officers and civilian staff members do to protect the residents,” said Police Services Chair, Rod Hicks. “This agreement exemplifies effective community policing, while being responsible and prudent with financial resources.”

“We have reached a fair agreement for our members,” said Police Association president, Dan Tucker. “It was important that we addressed specific requirements, such as improving mental health support for our members while continuing to provide value to the communities we serve.”

Midland Police announced Wednesday they reached an agreement with the rank and file.
