Mayor Jeffrey Supports Peel Regional Police Investigation into Out of Policy Requests (OPR) Program


​(BRAMPTON, ON) Today, I am pleased to see that Council has shown leadership in requesting an investigation into the Out of Policy Request (OPR) program that was brought to light in the City’s Internal Audit Report on Human Resources department’s policies from January 2009 - May 2014.
 
The report is a snapshot into how the Human Resource department functioned under the past.
 
I campaigned on bringing transparency and accountability to City Hall as Mayor and I am pleased to see we are continuing to move in this direction.
 
I am hopeful that Council will continue down this path of transparency and accountability and support my motion to appoint an Independent Auditor General at City Hall to ensure our residents have confidence in our city’s finances moving forward.
 
 
Respecting taxpayer dollars is my highest priority and I will continue to champion a stronger culture around transparency and accountability.
