Mayor Ford has negotiated a four (4) year tentative collective agreement with the Toronto Police. The agreement provides a salary increase of 11.5% over 4 years – currently a first class constable receives  $81,249 in wages only and if the police union membership approve this agreement, the first class constables will receive $90,623.00 in the last year of the agreement, 2014.  Improvements have also been added to benefits and vacation time.

Most of Toronto’s police will be making a six (6) figure salary, in 2014.  This salary will make them the highest paid police officers in the country. Toronto police consistt of 5,600 officers and 2,100 civilian members.

Currently, when reviewing the  City of Toronto budget, the police operating budget is by far the largest budget, at approximately $910 million dollars. Toronto’s taxpayers will be paying more than 1 billion a year, to fund the salaries, overtime & benefits of police. This does not include paid duty (which is above and beyond wages and benefits).

Toronto police officers will become the highest ever paid officer in the country with a deal that provides salary increases totalling 11.5 per cent over the next four years.
