Bail Safety Program Funding Out In March

Thunder Bay's Police Chief wants the Provincial Government to extend funding for the "Bail Safety" program.  Funding runs out at the end of March and means there will no longer be a Constable in charge of alerting victims of domestic abuse when their attacker is being let out of jail.  JP Levesque says they'll be lobbying the Province to keep funding the project.  Levesque says the program is critical since they investigate over 3-thousand domestic violence incidents a year.
