Chief Bordeleau wants more troops, less violence against women
Ottawa’s top cop said he needs more officers and resources, but insists Ottawa is a safe city — even the area that’s seen two teens fatally stabbed in the past five months.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Ottawa Sun, Bordeleau opened up about his past 3 1/2 years as head of the force, and discussed the challenges of policing the capital
“We recognize that there are limits and we have to operate in that restraint,” he said.
Among his concerns: A lack of resources in the guns and gangs unit and to combat violence against women, he said, forces personnel shifts.
