Police board make request for 8.7 per cent rise in budget

Police Chief Paul Burkart told council Nelson’s case load of 50 per member is high in comparison with other independent municipal police services such as Central Saanich’s case load of 19 and Oak Bay’s case load of 21.

In 2015 the Nelson Police board asked for a similar increase, one which was denied by council and was subsequently appealed by the board, landing on the desk of the provincial director of Police Services that ruled in favour of an increase.
