The Brockville Police Service Supports Launch of Province-wide Crime Prevention Campaign, “Protect Your Property Day”

The Brockville Police Service is supporting today’s launch of the 2015 Crime Prevention Campaign by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and its declaration of February 25th as “Protect Your Property Day”.

“Today, we join with police across Ontario encouraging everyone – homeowners, young people, seniors, businesses, renter – to take the time and consider how they can protect their property and avoid the financial as well as emotional costs of being a victim of crime.”

“Protect Your Property Day” is part of the OACP’s annual crime prevention campaign, which focuses on a broad range of crimes that impact Ontario residents and businesses, including on-line fraud, identification theft and other cybercrimes, auto theft, break-and-enters, bullying, and elder abuse. A new crime prevention booklet is now available to members of the public though the OACP and police services. The booklet contains helpful crime prevention tips and information.

While some types of property crime such break-and-enters are down, other crimes such as on-line identification theft and fraud increasing. Police also remain concerned about the number of crimes that are never reported to police.

This OACP campaign is made possible through the support of a number of partners: Accident Support Services International Ltd., CANASA (Canadian Security Association), TitlePLUS Title Insurance (a div. of LAWPRO® – Lawyers’ Professional Indemnity Company), Humber College – School of Social & Community Services, Interac Association, Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation, TRACE™ Identified, VIA Rail Canada.

Property Crime Trends in Canada
Police-reported break-ins continue to decline
Break-ins are one of the most serious forms of property crime, and their decrease in 2013 contributed more to the decline of the overall Crime Severity Index (CSI) than any other offence. In 2013, the rate of break-ins in Canada decreased 12%, reaching 445 per 100,000 population. The roughly 156,000 incidents reported by police in 2013 represented a decrease of about 20,000 from 2012. Over the past decade, the rate of police-reported breaking and entering has decreased by half (-51%).
While B&E’s reported are down, cases of fraud and ID fraud are increasing

Cases of identity theft and fraud have increased across Canada from 10,807 in 2012 to 11,594 in 2013 – a 6% increase. Identity thieves are looking for such documents so they can assume identities, secure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export and even take out a mortgage against victims’ properties without their knowledge. Victims may not realize they have been victimized until it is too late, costing them time and money to rectify the damage.

Factors influencing police-reported crime
There are many factors that influence police-reported crime statistics. First, an incident must come to the attention of police. The decision by the public to report criminal incidents to police has a considerable impact on the number of crimes ultimately recorded by police. The 2009 General Social Survey on Victimization, which provides the most recent information on Canadians’ crime reporting behaviour for selected offences, indicated that about one-third (31%) of crimes in the year prior to the survey had been reported to police.

Second, differences between individual police services, such as available resources or departmental priorities, policies and procedures can also have an effect on police-reported crime. For instance, as a crime prevention measure, some police services have implemented initiatives to focus attention on prolific or repeat offenders within the community. Moreover, certain crimes such as impaired driving, prostitution, and drug offences can be notably affected by a police service’s enforcement practices. Some police services may also make greater use of municipal bylaws or provincial statutes to respond to minor offences such as mischief and disturbing the peace.

Thirdly, and more broadly, social and economic factors can influence the volume of crime at a national, regional, municipal or neighbourhood level. In particular, crime rates can be affected by age demographics, economic conditions, neighbourhood characteristics, the emergence of new technologies or by peoples’ attitudes toward crime and risky behavior.

Dating Scam: Brockville Police received a report yesterday from a person who engaged in conversation with a person they had met through a dating website. After exchanging messages on the dating site the scammer then asked for the complainant’s private email so they could have a “private conversation”. After exchanging a few emails the complainant went back to the dating website and found the person she was chatting with had removed their profile which the complainant found suspicious. The scammer continued the conversations saying they ran a home based business. When the complainant suggested the 2 meet in a public place the scammer always refused saying they had a business meeting. Eventually the scammer told the complainant they had to go away on a business trip to Ghana and would be in contact after arrival. After the arrival in Ghana, suddenly the scammer had a family emergency with their son and required money for surgery and asked the complainant to send money. The complainant, already suspicious then contact the police.


This scam is common in the area and has different variations of the same story. Meeting on a dating site and exchange personal information. The scammer will never agree to a personal face to face meeting, but may talk over Skype or Yahoo Messenger, and always has a business meeting as an excuse. The con artist will then claim to go away on a business trip and will claim an emergency that requires the victim to send money to get them home. DO NOT send money to someone you do not know and have never met in person.

An early intervention program is coming to Lanark, Leeds and Grenville to prevent youth from getting involved with the criminal justice system. The program, called Intersections, is aimed at children and youth who may have mental health, developmental disabilities, and/or substance use issues and who have had an initial contact with police services.

Community partners have been working together over the past nine months to customize and put the program in place in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville.

To introduce the Intersections program to the community, a one-day training event will be held on January 14, 2015, 9 AM to 3:30 PM, at North Grenville Municipal Centre in Kemptville, ON.

This event,aimed at professionals working with youth who have mental health, developmental and substance use problems. Teachers, social service professionals, police officers, family support workers, and allied professionals were in attendance.

The training session include:
• An overview of the new Intersections program and how it will be applied in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville;
• A look at health equity and supporting tools, including the Health Equity Impact Assessment;
• Presentations from local community support services, including addictions, mental health, developmental disabilities, and community policing.
This event was presented by the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Intersections Steering Committee, a regional implementation team within the Champlain Youth Justice Service Collaborative (CYSJC). CYSJC is one of 18 service collaboratives across Ontario. Systems Improvement through Service Collaboratives is one initiative in Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, which is sponsored by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).

About Intersections
Intersections is an early intervention program that focuses on navigation and coordination of services for children and youth with suspected mental health, developmental disabilities and/or substance use issues, who are at risk of becoming justice involved. The aim is to improve well-being and reduce involvement with police services.

Background
Systems Improvement through Service Collaboratives is one of the initiatives under Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. The service collaboratives across Ontario are focusing on improving transitions for children and youth. Four of them are dedicated to improving transitions between the mental health and justice systems. As sponsor of the initiative, CAMH is providing support to communities to implement new programs.

The CYJC brings together 74 agencies and organizations from Lanark, Leeds and Grenville, Ottawa, Prescott-Russell, Renfrew County and Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry. These agencies work in the sectors of health, mental health, addictions, education, justice as well as those serving the region’s priority populations: Francophones, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis.

The CYJSC identified “navigating youth through various pathways to appropriate individualized supportive services” as a system gap. To address this system gap, the service collaborative adapted the Intersections program from the Youth Justice Liaison and Diversion Model, which was developed by the National Child and Maternal Health Intelligence Network, Public Health England.
