Criminal cash to benefit Toronto police

Toronto police will get some “cool” new tools to help nab criminals as well as money to renovate an interview room to make crime victims more comfortable.

Toronto police will get some “cool” new tools to help nab criminals as well as money to renovate an interview room to make crime victims more comfortable.

The force applied for, and will receive, five provincial grants totalling almost $292,000 under the province’s Civil Remedies Grant program.

“Some of the funds will be used in fighting organized crime. Other funds will be used to support victims... particularly child victims,” said Attorney General Chris Bentley, who joined Community Safety and Correctional Services Minister Jim Bradley and police Chief Bill Blair to announce the grants Monday.

Previous money from the program has gone to provincial police for specialized training of officers. London police received money for a large command and control vehicle to go to emergency situations.

Other forces received money for surveillance in high crime areas or for victims.
