Community Police Liaison Marilyn Hodge with Police and Auxiliary Officers
Break and enters in 2017 are down quite a bit in 43 Division. Daytime residential break and enters are on the rise in 42 Division and York Region and major arrests have been made. 43 Division has not been hit like this.
This week, officers will be out enforcing the traffic act regarding safety, speeding and distracted driving.
If someone comes to your door asking to check your furnace, your water heater, etc., and they won’t leave, call 911. If you see suspicious people in your neighbourhood, report them. Call the non-emergency line at 416-808-2222 or call the community line at 416-808-4328.
Youth on youth robberies are up for things like cell phones.
There aren’t many thefts of regular autos, but organized crime is targeting high-end vehicles.
If you have a concern about parking on your street, call Parking Enforcement at 416-808-6600. Please make sure that you don’t block fire route hydrants or City of Toronto ‘”No Parking” signs.
Tip of the Month
Adam reports the crime statistics to the CPLC. Here is his tip of the month: distraction theft is always a concern. Recently, two shoppers at a mall have been distracted and their wallets removed during the encounter. Please be aware of strangers talking to you in the mall. Always be aware of your surroundings and strange encounters.
