TTC Budgets to Hire 98 More Special Constables

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 17, 2006) - The TTC plans to hire 98 more Transit Special Constables to increase the total number of Constables to 174 over the next 5 years.

The TTC currently has 76 Special Constables and the multi year plan calls for an initial hiring of 21 more in 2006.

Implementation of the budget plan will bring the TTC closer in line with the law enforcement deployment found on other major Canadian Transit properties.

TTC Special Constables have the powers of a Police Officer for the purpose of enforcing the Criminal Code of Canada, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Trespass to Property Act, the Liquor Licence Act, and Section 17 of the Mental Health Act.
