Amherstburg town council has voted for Windsor to take over police service in the town.

Mayor DiCarlo, and Councillors Fryer and Meloche voted in favor, while Councillors Lavigne and Courtney opposed.

Deputy Mayor DiPasquale and Councillor Pouget declared a conflict and did not vote.

The Windsor proposal would maintain the current level of service the town has plus add several enhancements. Those include, additional 12 officers to assist in traffic enforcement should the need arise, access to a dedicated crisis negotiator unit, and access to a full-time emergency services unit, marine patrol unit and bomb squad.

The contract with Windsor is for 20 years and would start on January 1st, 2019.
