A longtime police officer turned consultant is calling the Orangeville treasurer's OPP costing analysis a "flawed document."

Maurice Hodgson was hired by the Orangeville Police Services Association to review the document presented to council earlier this month.

Using the OPP's new billing model, Treasurer Marc Villeneuve suggests the town could save $4.5-million starting in the first year after the OPP's three-year transitional contract.

Hodgson told the police services board Tuesday (Apr. 18) that he found the report to be "full of errors and omissions" and that it was "misleading."

If the switch was made to OPP, the provincial force would maintain a full-time equivalent (FTE) of 42.58 uniform officers. But based on the treasurer's numbers in year four, Hodgson says it adds up to about 28 to 30 FTE officers, which he adds wouldn't be enough to police Orangeville.

Hodgson also noted that his contacts within the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services couldn't substantiate Villeneuve's report.

An outside auditor is going to be reviewing the treasurer's analysis.
