88 pages
This 1979 annual report details the organization, activities, and accomplishments of Ontario's Ministry of the Solicitor General.
The eight departments reviewed are the Ontario Police Commission, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Ontario Police Arbitration Commission, and the Public Safety Division, which includes the Office of the Fire Marshall, the Office of the Chief Coroner, Forensic Pathology, and the Centre of Forensic Sciences. In 1979, a Budget and Resources Analysis System and a Criminal Statistics System, both internal information systems, were developed and implemented. These added to the information services already provided by the Canadian Police Information Centre, the Police Automated Registration Information System, the Computer Aided Dispatch and Record Entry Project, the Vehicle Registration System Project, the Suspended Driver Control Centre, and the Integrated Radio Services Program. Other developments were a general crime increase, estimated at 7 percent over 1978, and the addition of many courses to the Ontario Police College to provide specialized police training. Furthermore, some major arbitration decisions were made in the areas of rights disputes, salaries, service pay, reimbursement of legal fees, shift scheduling, and death benefits. Tables and charts illustrate resource allocation for the year, agency organization, jurisdiction boundaries, and other information on the year's activities.
