The R-C-M-P and many other police forces are refusing to pay new fees imposed by Rogers Communications for helping track suspects through their mobile phones.

Police say the telecommunications firm is legally obligated to provide such court-ordered services and to cover the cost as part of its duty to society.

But Rogers says while it picks up the tab for most judicially approved requests, in some cases it will charge a fee.

The dispute underscores long-standing tensions over who should pay when police call on telephone and Internet providers to help investigate cases.
