The Police Services Board approved the 2020 net Operating Budget for York Regional Police of $348 million, which is a 4.17 percent increase over the 2019 Budget and includes the addition of 34 police officers and civilian members to address growth in the Region impacting front-line policing, workload pressures including call centre communications with the public and maintaining quality services in administrative functions. The 2020 Police Operating Budget continues to maintain the lowest policing cost per capita in Canada among comparable police services serving populations of over 1 million residents.

Financing for the capital budget is a combination of contributions from reserves, debenture proceeds repaid from development charges, debt reduction reserve funding, development charge collections and external funding.
