London Police Association Statement Regarding the Dissolution of the Community Oriented Response (COR) Unit

London, ON, November 18th, 2021 – Today, Chief Williams announced the dissolution of the Community Oriented Response (COR) Unit. The COR Unit has served an important role protecting our community, but the increasing number of calls for service without the addition of new resources for more police officers has left Chief Williams with no other option.

London needs more police officers.

Calls for service have reached unprecedented levels in London and are impairing the ability of our members to provide the services that Londoners are accustomed to and deserve. Our members, both in uniform and civilian, are being pushed to the brink.

The London Police Service is understaffed, our members are overworked, and we are collectively focused on finding solutions. Through the first ten months of 2021, LPS has spent 33,000 additional hours responding to calls for service than over the same timeframe in 2020. That is equivalent to 16 full-time police officers. Cutting services to keep our heads above water is not a long-term solution and will have noticeably negative effects within our community.

We are united with Chief Williams’ plea for additional front-line police officers. The LPA has been highlighting the real issue of mental health and burnout for months. This issue has been identified in the 2019 Chief Coroner’s expert panel report as damaging to the health of our members, the quality of service our members provide to Londoners, and the overall safety and security of our community.

In the coming weeks, we will be sharing more about this issue as we look forward to enacting sustainable long-term solutions.

Your service has definatly been lacking and your own officers state that the city has grown by 100,000 and the number of officers has not increased. I have been assaulted and police just don't come anymore until the next day. Stay safe London.

This has been a problem in London for many years, I for one would be happy with a tax increase to keep our city safe and to alleviate the stress that our police officers face everyday due to the shortage of officers to meet the needs of Londoners. People need to stop shouting about petty things like wearing a mask etc., and realize this affects all of us and is worth shouting about.

Complete lack of leadership. Many officers have been moved from the street into specialty units and no replacements for the street. Street is the bread and butter. Its what the citizens of London see. Lps have lost what the people london want. Surveys continually want traffic enforcement as #1. Visibility is a strong second. Lps isn't even doing that. I haven't seen a vehicle stopped on the side of the road by a police officer in years. Peopke are speeding around like crazy. Time to reevaluate Lps. Time to make investments in the Frontline. Good thing the chief has finally realized this. More needs to be done. Disband other units and reinvest in the front line.

London has always been short on staffing It should make the defund police group so happy

Having police on foot patrol in the downtown district is more important than it has ever been. This change is not good.

How about go to Justin Trudeau and get some money from the kickback he got on the vaccines! He pocketed all kinds of $$$

London needs more officers, considering how much London has grown in the last two years. Large hires would be a great opportunity to become a FL officer with London police. Sign me up.

i want to f.i.r

Proud to have served. Proud to have been on the Police Association. Disappointed the chronic understaffing continues. The cost will be measured in lives effected not dollars saved.
