Delta to host forum on regional policing

The municipality of Delta is hosting a forum later this week on regional policing.

The meeting is open to the public and will feature a panel discussion involving Vancouver Police, the RCMP and Wally Oppal — whose Missing Women Commission report recommends a regional force.

Delta Mayor Lois Jackson is against police amalgamation — she says it’s passe.

“New York City went from regional back to local police on the street and the crime rate plummeted, so there is a lot of examples around…”

The meeting begins at 7:00 Wednesday evening at the Delta Town & Country Inn.
