In an effort to save money, Fredericton police officers will be forced into retirement through attrition.


Fredericton has a goal to save one-and-a-half million dollars a year for three years and they've decided in order to reach that goal they need to reduce the number of city employees.

The city wants to reduce the amount of city employees from 700 to 633 and at least 14 police officers face potential early retirement.
