The Brockville Police Service wants all students to have a safe and successful school year. This is a shared responsibility of the whole community and we would like to remind motorists to be more diligent with the increase in students traveling to school.
Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is extremely important that they take proper safety precautions. Here are some tips to make sure your child safely travels to school:

Walking to school
• Review your family’s walking safety rules.
• Walk on the sidewalk, if one is available.
• When on a street with no sidewalk, walk facing the traffic.
• Before you cross the street, stop and look left, right and left again to see if cars are coming.
• Never dart out in front of a parked car.
• Practice walking to school with your child.

Riding a bicycle to school
• Make sure your child always wears his/her helmet when leaving the house.
• Make sure helmet is fitted and secured properly.
• Teach your children the rules of the road.
• Ride on the right side of the road, with traffic, and in a single file.
• Come to a complete stop before crossing the street. Walk bike across street.

Riding the bus to school
• Go to the bus stop with your child to teach them the proper way to get on and off the bus.
• Make sure your children stand six feet away (or 3 giant steps) from the curb.
• If your child and you need to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the side of the road until you are 10 feet ahead of the bus. You always should be able to see the bus driver, and the bus driver always should be able to see you.

As a motorist:
• Be patient, especially with pedestrians who need more time to cross the road;
• Always look for pedestrians, especially when turning;
• Remember, stay alert and slow down on residential streets and through school zones.

Offences
• The offence for Fail to stop for school bus is $490.00 & 6 demerit points.
• Offences at pedestrian crossings, school crossings, and at crosswalks are $150 and 3 demerit points.
• All fines are double ($300) in Community Safety Zones near schools and public areas.

Police would like to remind the community again about a couple active scams taking place. These scams are not new but people are still being taken advantage of.

The first one involves a phone call being received advising of a computer problem. Residents are then advised to attend their computer and open it allowing access. They are charged a fee for fixing a problem that never existed or worse yet, their identity is jeopardized. Police remind people to ignore these requests and never allow remote access to their computers or credit cards. If you suspect there is a problem with your computer seek local computer expertise.

The second scam involves people trying to sell items on Kijiji etc. They receive a cheque from someone posing as a buyer which amounts to more than the price of the item for sale. They are then asked to attend a money transfer outlet and send the proposed buyer a wire transfer for the difference. These people are not legitimate and the cheques are not cashable.

These scams have been going on for a while now. We ask the public to be careful and avoid any transactions that raise a flag.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!

The caller then asks for the victim’s credit card number and for the victim to go to the computer and they will download the software immediately. After a few instructions the caller tells the victim their new software is installed and bills them through their credit card.

In fact, what the caller has done has had the victim disable their current virus protection and obtained their credit card information. The scammer may continue for several weeks to call back in an attempt to sell increased protection or use the credit for other purchases.

The Brockville Police are urging residents to never give credit card information out to strangers over the phone.

MEDIA RELEASE: 07.18.2014

There are only six weeks left in the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Leeds-Grenville & Lanark's "Caring for Our Community" Capital Campaign that concludes on Sunday, August 31st with a "Wrap Party" at the Keystorm Pub. And there are many ways in which the general public can contribute to the Brigade's fundraising efforts.

Coming off the Capital Campaign's most successful fundraiser to date, the July 11th "An Evening of Art & Music at the Connell Homestead in Spencerville", there are several smaller events and projects planned. Almost 80 patrons attended the July 11th fundraiser hosted by Sarah Jane and Richard Dumbrille in the historic Connell Homestead, at which the guests were treated to swing music by Alexander's Big Time Band, exciting live and silent auctions featuring local artists, and a wonderful summer's meal. The $12,300 raised that evening helped to bring the current fundraising total over $150,000.

On Saturday, August 2nd Acting Chief of the Brockville Police Services, Scott Fraser will take part in the "Ice Bucket Challenge" to raise even more funds for the SJA Capital Campaign. Earlier in July, David Dargie - Capital Campaign Coordinator "called out" both former BPS Chief Barry King and Chief Fraser to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge, where a person pours a bucket of ice water over his/her head and then challenges two other people to do the same within 48 hours or else contribute to a designated charity. Chief King responded on time, however Chief Fraser missed his "window of opportunity" and will now have a public soaking, all to benefit the "Caring for Our Community" Capital Campaign.

The public is invited to support Chief Fraser's fundraising efforts both before August 2nd and at the "Ice Bucket Challenge" that is scheduled for 10:00 AM on August 2nd at the City of Brockville's Farmers' Market. Members of the St. John Ambulance Brigade will be "passing the hat" for Chief Fraser to make sure that he can make a "healthy" contribution to the Capital Campaign. All of the fun associated with this event will be captured on video and posted on You Tube.

David Dargie, originator of the "Ice Bucket Challenge" and the "Caring for Our Community" Capital Campaign Coordinator observed, "We are very fortunate to have two good sports, former BPS Chief Barry King and Acting Chief Scott Fraser, who are willing to take the Ice Bucket Challenge and raise funds for the 'Caring for Our Community' Capital Campaign. Everyone is invited to the Farmers' Market in Downtown Brockville on Saturday, August 2nd at 10:00 AM to witness some good old fashioned FUN raising! We have several other ways in which everyone in Leeds-Grenville & Lanark Counties can help us reach our Capital Campaign goals. Watch in the coming weeks to see how you can help us reach our goals."

Anyone wishing to make a tax deductible donation to the "Caring for Our Community" Capital Campaign are invited to contact St. John House by telephoning 613.342.2974 or by e-mail: brockville@on.sja.ca.

“Prescription medications are legal and intended for prescription use under a physician’s supervision. When taken as prescribed, they are safe. It is the misuse of the drug that is dangerous.

Press Release
Last week, police services across Canada participated in a two-day blitz focusing on the growing concern that young women are being forced to participate in the sex trade.

Operation Northern Spotlight involved 26 police services on January 22 and 23, 2014 and was centered around hotels and motels on major thoroughfares in over 30 cities and towns across the country. Over 330 young women, some as young as 15 years of age, were interviewed. Police found some were being forced to perform sexual acts, multiple times a day, for paying male customers.

Although the Criminal Code section refers to this activity as “Human Trafficking,” the public may better understand this issue as “sex slavery.” Although many of the women appear to be making their own decisions to participate for financial gain, investigators found several teenagers and young women were being forced to perform through threats of violence, physical intimidation, drug dependency and other forms of coercion. Part or all of the proceeds from the sexual encounters were kept by their adult male controller or pimp.

Police Services will continue to monitor any incidents of “forced participation” in hopes of assisting any woman involved in the sex trade business against her will.

The 26 police services participating were:

Ontario
Barrie PS; Brockville PS; Cornwall PS; Durham Regional PS; Halton Regional PS; Kingston PS; London PS; Niagara Regional PS; Ontario Provincial Police; Ottawa PS; Peel Regional PS; RCMP; Greater Sudbury PS; Thunder Bay PS; Waterloo Regional PS; Windsor PS; York Regional PS.

Western Canada
Calgary PS Alta; Edmonton PS Alta; Regina PS Sask; Saskatoon PS Sask; Winnipeg PS Man.

Eastern Canada
Gatineau PS, Que; Halifax Regional PS, NS; Saint John’s RNC, NFLD; Saint John PS, NB.

If you have information about any young person being coerced into the sex trade, please contact Detective Mark Noonan of the Brockville Police Service or your local Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

MEDIA NOTE: This initiative was coordinated by Sergeant Ron Kapuscinski

We have just launched a new crime mapping tool that is publicly available at www.brockvillepolice.com.

This new website (CrimePlot.com) is owned and managed by the Midland Police Service and was developed by S/Constable Bill Gordon, the service's IT Manager. The concept is to allow citizens of Brockville to visualize criminal activity and police calls for service in and around the community. The site is built to be mobile-device friendly, so it should work on your smartphones and tablets as well as your desktop computers.

The mapping data is an extract from our master database and only contains incidents that meet public disclosure eligibility. We won't provide detailed locations for any specific incident and the co-ordinates have a margin of error induced to help anonymize the visualizations. This means that the incident you see on the map did not occur at the exact pinpoint of the icon.

Incident classifications that could lead to the identity of a victim have not been included on this map. You won't find incidents for sudden deaths (natural causes), suicides, suicide attempts, mental health issues, domestic violence, child abuse etc...
Since we only show a subset of our data you cannot expect that the number of mapped incidents (aka occurrences) that are visible are a true reflection of how many incidents are actually on file for the day(s) or time range you selected.

The tool is new, there might be the odd bug, but it is ready for public trials. Please try it out and let us know what you think. Visit often since we will be updating the data regularly and adding features that you might find useful.

We hope that you find this new tool both useful and insightful. You may be surprised to learn what is happening in your community. Sharing this with our community just makes sense.

Thank you to Bill Gordon, Chief Mike Osborne and the Midland Police Service for making this tool available.
