Success Story – Timmins Police Services Dispatch Centre
When the new police station was being built, t Timmins Economic Development Corporation, the City of Timmins, and the Timmins Police Services (TPS) joined forces to secure $1.5 million in funding from FedNor and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation. The funding was used to purchase equipment for a much needed regional police dispatch centre.
The investment has allowed the TPS to create additional jobs in Timmins and to better serve and protect both the Timmins community, and many others throughout the region. The dispatch employs over a dozen people and the state-of-the-art technology in the facility has improved emergency service and response times throughout the region.
