TPS begins process of divesting Crossing Guard program

The Toronto Police Service is taking early steps in its expressed intention of divesting itself of the School Crossing Guard program. To begin, it is asking those interested in possibly assuming these duties to provide information to the service on how this might be done. It says that if there “sufficient interest, ability and feasibility of third-party delivery of the program, the TPS may, but is not obligated to, initiate a competitive bidding opportunity.”  News release
