Local Security Beefing Up

With all the excitement for the Stars and Thunder Festival and warmer temperatures, security is starting to plan for the masses who will arrive in Timmins. Along with dozens of security officers, as many as 28 active police officers posted at a handful of locations. The cost of policing, paid out to city officers at the rate of time-and-a-half on a “paid duty” agreement would range between $100,000 and $120,000 depending on the number of officers required.
