(2) The Commissioner shall determine the Average Annual Number of O.P.P. Officers Required for Municipal Policing by an integrated detachment in respect of a specific year, whenever that number is required for purposes of a calculation under section 4.

(3) The Commissioner shall base their determination on an analysis of the workload of the O.P.P. officers in the integrated detachment during the four-year period and, in analyzing the workload, the Commissioner shall consider the types of roads patrolled by O.P.P. officers assigned to the detachment, the availability of O.P.P. officers assigned to the detachment to respond to calls for service in light of the level of demand for the officers to provide other policing functions, the types of calls for service received by the detachment and the need for multiple O.P.P. officers to respond to certain types of calls for service for safety reasons.

Classes of municipal calls for service

3. (1) For the purpose of calculating the Municipal Calls for Service Charges for municipalities under section 4, the Commissioner shall establish two or more classes of municipal calls for service, based on the types of occurrences that constitute municipal calls for service and the O.P.P. resources required to respond to each type of occurrence.

(2) The Commissioner shall first establish the classes no later than the day on which this Regulation comes into force, and may subsequently from time to time change the classes by adding a class, removing a class or changing the content of a class.

(3) The Commissioner shall ensure that the classes first established under this section are and remain readily available to the public on the O.P.P. website or from the O.P.P. on and after the day on which this Regulation comes into force, and that any changes made to the classes under this section are and remain readily available to the public on the O.P.P. website or from the O.P.P. on and after the date on which they begin to apply.
