Detainee Guarding and Transportation
The financial burden carried by the Kativik Regional Police Force (KRPF) for guarding and transferring detainees is directly proportional to the number of arrests, bail hearings and cases heard by the region’s itinerant court. The costs are in fact estimated to represent 15% of the KRPF’s operating budget. The KRPF and its partners have so far been unable to identify immediate solutions to lower these costs. Savings generated in this area would make available more financial resources for regular policing services.
