Jessome Wants To Discuss Vehicles With Police Chief
The president of the union representing Regional Police officers says she’s hoping to discuss the issue of managers’ vehicles with Police Chief Peter MacIsaac.
At issue is 13 unmarked vehicles that MacIsaac says mangers need to travel to crime scenes at all hours of the day.
However, Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union president Joan Jessome says the union would like to see the vehicles redistributed with five kept for managers.
Jessome adds the remaining eight vehicles would be distributed across the force’s four divisions.
Jessome goes on to say the union wants to talk to legal counsel and staff before taking the next step and says she’s hopeful a meeting with McIsaac will solve the issue.
Meanwhile, Police Commission Chair and Regional Councillor Eldon MacDonald says he also wants to meet with Chief MacIsaac in order to get a better understanding of the issue.
