Hamilton police Chief Glenn DeCaire wants to rescind his retirement notice.
According to the CHML report, he says members of the public have asked him to stay and there are a number of projects he has been working on that are almost complete and he wants to see through.
The Spectator’s Andrew Dreschel has previously reported that philanthropist Charles Juravinski and businessman Ron Foxcroft are lobbying police board members to let De Caire say on.
De Caire has refused to comment to the Spectator or explain why he told the board last September he didn’t want another term after his five-year contract expires Dec. 31, 2014. The divided board accepted his resignation in a 4-3 vote last December.
The board has already hired a headhunting firm to find a new chief, a contract with a $80,000 price tag. (Source: Hamilton Spectator)
