OPP Working With MNR During Hunting Season
Friday, October 10, 2014 (2901 reads)


The OPP will be working closely with members of the MNR Conservation Officers throughout this hunting season.

Police remind you to ensure that you have the appropriate hunting licences for the game that you will be hunting for. It is your responsibility to know the game possession limits for your hunting area, as well as the hunting season dates for your wildlife management area.  You must have a current licence to carry a firearm and have it with you. It is an offence to have a loaded firearm in your vehicle, ATV or boat.

All hunters must wear a hunter orange garment and a hunter orange head covering. The more visible you are—the safer you will be..

Hunt only where you are permitted and stay off private property unless you have written permission from the land owner.

Practice safe firearm handling practices. Keep the safety on and finger off the trigger until you are actually going to fire. Be sure of your target and beyond. You are responsible for the rounds you fire, so make sure of what is beyond your target and what your target is. There may be others in the forest close by.

Hunter safety is everyone’s responsibility. For more information about hunting regulations go to www.mnr.gov.on.ca or contact your local MNR office.

Police Advise Cottagers to Properly Secure Cottages for the Season
Friday, October 10, 2014 (781 reads)


Northern Ontario is getting ready for cooler temperatures and wet weather conditions. The time has come for seasonal cottagers to make their properties ready for the winter. It’s important for property owners to take a few extra minutes to consider the tasks that they can complete to make their cottages as theft resistant as possible when they close things up for the year. Here are a few tips that may help:

• Take valuable items home. If this is not possible place them out of view or lock them in a secure room or cabinet.

• Do not leave alcohol in your cottage.

• Make sure that all doors and windows are locked and secured when you leave.  Installing theft prevention devices on your sliding patio doors and windows, even a stick will secure them.

• Close all your curtains and blinds or use a blanket or sheet so that thieves cannot see inside your cottage.

• Install quality locks on your doors. A dead bolt is a better idea. You can also strengthen your doors and striker plates by installing longer screws.

• Do not leave boats, ATV’s or other vehicles out in the open and unsecured. Lock them up in a garage and remove the keys. If you must leave them outside, lock them to a tree or some permanent structure. Drain the fuel tanks and take used fuel home. Do not leave gas cans as it may be used to steal your ATV or sled.

• Tell your neighbours when you are closing up for the winter. Permanent residents living close by can be your eyes and ears when you are not there. 

Securing your property as best as you can, may reduce the opportunities for the criminals. For more information check the crime prevention section on the OPP website at www.opp.ca.

Emergency Scam Claiming Victims
Friday, October 10, 2014 (3787 reads)


Ontario Provincial Police say scammers continue to inflict financial and emotional harm by preying upon seniors and vulnerable citizens through “The Emergency Scam”.

In 2013, 9 per cent of the total number of complaints received at the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre were submitted by Canadian victims of the “Emergency Scam” -- sometimes referred to as the “Grandparent Scam”. Of those 2,269 complaints, 743 people were identified as victims who reported a loss of more than $2.4 million.

In a typical “emergency” scam, the victim receives a phone call or e-mail from someone claiming to be a friend or relative in distress. The caller or e-mailer goes on to indicate that they are in some kind of trouble, such as being in a car crash, they need money for bail, or they are having trouble returning from a foreign country. The fraudster specifically asks that the victims to not tell other relatives. You may get a call from two people, one pretending to be a person in distress and the other pretending to be either a police officer or a lawyer. Your so-called “grandchild” asks questions during the call, getting victims to volunteer personal information. Victims generally don't verify the story until after their money has been sent through a wire transfer service or they have provided access to personal banking or credit card information to criminals.

To guard against becoming a victim, police advise you to first check with another family member or trusted friend to verify the information BEFORE sending any money or providing credit card information by phone or e-mail. These incidents should be reported every time they occur, to allow police to investigate and find the perpetrators.

If you or someone you know may have been the victim of the ‘emergency’ scam, contact your local police service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

OPP Target Big Four This Weekend
Friday, October 10, 2014 (3758 reads)


The OPP continue to concentrate on the “Big Four” driving behaviours that they say were contributing factors in 168 of the 216 road deaths investigated by the OPP this year.  The “Big Four” refers to the four main causal factors in motor vehicle collision deaths: distracted driving, speeding, impaired driving and lack of occupant restraint. 

These four factors are the leading causes of collision deaths throughout Canada.  For this reason, the OPP will be joining policing partners across the country for Operation Impact – a national road safety enforcement and education campaign endorsed by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.

In support of Operation Impact, the OPP will be counting on motorists to take great care in the way they drive over the long weekend.  They are also asking passengers to take care of their own safety and to speak up when in a vehicle with a driver who endangers their lives through any of these driving behaviours.
