At the request of the Police Services Board outgoing Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair will conduct a review of the annual sunshine list’ that shows more than half of GTA’s police officers made over $100,000 last year.

The so-called sunshine list was released on Monday. It is the first time earnings for paid duty have been included in their salaries.

Most paid duty assignments are not funded by taxpayers, but critics claim officers often have to work overtime to cover for their colleagues who are on paid duty.

The board has asked Blair to provide more information on the paid duty program and expects the chief to report back in May with an action plan.

The board also wants an explanation from Blair about the number of officers who earn more than 50 per cent of their base salary in overtime.
