Calgary’s police chief said he doesn’t foresee any effect on staffing levels despite shaving $2 million of his requested budget for 2011.
Rick Hanson, who was speaking at a luncheon, said the cuts came in areas such as decreasing fuel costs, reserves and training.
“It’s going to create a bit of a deficit with training,” he said. “We have to figure out how we’re going to address it in another way.”
City budget deliberations are slated to begin Monday.
