September 30th Incident

Needles Recovered

An alert Brockville resident discovered two full bags of used syringes along the Brock Trail in the area of the creek by Perth Street and brought them to the attention of the police. While checking the area, there were several more syringes scattered on the ground. Parents are asked to remind children of the dangers of coming in contact with used needles and not touch or pick up discarded syringes but rather bring them to the attention of authorities so they can be properly disposed of. Residents who must use syringes for their medication are reminded to use safe disposal containers and return the syringes to be safely disposed of.
