 Advisory

The North Bay Police wish to advise the public that we are in the process of installing GPS Pre-Emption technology in our emergency vehicles that will work with the city initiated program. Installations will be done as older vehicles are replaced over the next couple of years.

This technology will trigger traffic lights to turn green for approaching emergency vehicles but only when their emergency lights are activated. The light change to green is completed in a manner that does not interrupt the flow of traffic or pose a problem for pedestrians.

The North Bay Fire Department already has this technology and we are the first

Canadian police service that we know of, to use this technology in conjunction with fire services.

We want the public to be aware that they will encounter more of these situations because of the additional equipped vehicles and the volume of police emergencies.

Public safety is paramount and this technology will equate to safer streets in emergency situations as well as quicker response times.

Safety Caution

The cold weather creates safety issues for both drivers and pedestrians. When temperatures are as cold as it has been, a film of frost forms on sidewalks and roadways. Salt is ineffective at these temperatures which makes walking and driving hazardous. Extremely cold rubber compounds and the tread on both tires and footwear are also not as effective. High snow banks, extra clothing, vehicle exhaust, and frosted windshields contribute to visibility problems making any commute more dangerous. The North Bay Police want the public to be aware of the dangers, be more vigilant and allow more time for your commutes.

North Bay Police Assist Barrie Police Service Investigation

The Barrie Police Service Street Crime Drug Unit conducted an investigation into an elaborate scheme by several Barrie residents to fraudulently obtain prescription narcotics from pharmacies and traffic them into the community.

The investigation led investigators to North Bay where they worked in cooperation with the North Bay Police service to follow a trail of illicit Fentanyl patches. Information shared between the two agencies pointed to a Barrie doctor's office as being the source location for between $200 000 and $300 000 worth of Fentanyl.    (Street level value).

Officers identified an employee of the medical practice and two accomplices as the culprits behind the scheme. The police wish to make it abundantly clear that the Doctor and other staff at the office had no knowledge of the illicit activity and once made aware, were completely cooperative and instrumental in the police investigation.

The scheme relied on the position of trust the employee enjoyed through her employment that facilitated many Barrie and North Bay residents to be issued prescriptions for substantial quantities of Fentanyl, which were retrieved from the pharmacies and turned over to the trio for distribution.

The Barrie Police Street Crime Unit executed search warrants at three Barrie locations. A 31 year old Barrie female, a 30 year old Barrie male along with a 41 year old Barrie male were arrested and each face 23 counts of make false document, 23 counts of use forged documents, 22 counts of trafficking in Fentanyl and one count of trafficking in Oxycodone for a total of 207 charges. All three were held in custody for bail hearings.

The investigation is continuing in Barrie and North Bay in relation to possible frauds committed against the Ontario Public Drug Program.

 MISCHIEF

On Mon 24th Sept at 8:30pm the residents of a Regina St address heard a loud bang against the side of their house. When they went outside to investigate they found a small piece of concrete that had been wrapped in a paper towel and set on fire. The fire was put out and there was only minor damage to the porch carpet. Cst Ashley St John is investigating.

MISCHIEF

Over the long weekend in August, 3 padlocks were removed from rail switches located under the Main St overpass that belong to the Ottawa Valley Railway (OVR).

The company then had the bolts tack welded to prevent a reoccurrence. Over the past weekend the 3 high security locks from the same 3 switches were removed.  There is no evidence to indicate the high security locks were cut off. OVR is concerned that any movement of the switches when not locked could cause a derailment, and hazardous content could be spilled. One of the switches leads to the ONR yards and if that switch is changed, a collision could occur with any trains or cars parked in the yards. Additional prevention measures will be taken by the OVR. Cst Barry MacIntosh is investigating.

Crime Prevention week

This week of Nov 4th to 9th is crime Prevention week. Each day a media release will be made with a crime prevention theme.  Inquiries about Crime Prevention week can be made through Cst Alain Bedard North Bay Police Community Resource Officer at 705-497 5588.

Crime Prevention is EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY!

Do your part to build strong and safe communities:

1.     Discuss crime prevention with your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.

2.     Protect your family, your property and yourself.

3.     Get involved in your community.

4.     Speak up for victims of crime.

Theme of the day - "Don't give it away, secure your assets!"

Through proper attention to home security and protection, you can reduce and discourage break-ins.  Follow these simple and effective measures:

Home

·        Discourage theft of valuables by identifying property and maintaining an inventory of brands, serial and model numbers of all household possessions.  Make video or take photographs of all your valuables.

·        Insure your home and contents, and store valuables in a safety deposit box.

·        Install dead-bolt locks on all exterior doors and self-tapping screws in the upper track of patio doors and windows.

·        Consider installing a home security system and ensure that everybody in the house knows how it works.

·        Ensure that entry locks are changed or re-keyed if you are a new tenant or home owner.

·        Secure all basement and ground level windows and patio doors.  Use protective glass or window film where possible.  Never leave accessible windows open, especially while sleeping.

·        Give your home the 'lived-in' look, with light-activating automatic timers, motion sensors, etc.  Have mail, newspapers, flyers, etc., picked up, lawn cut or snow removed when you are away on vacation or business. When possible, cancel all deliveries when being away from your home.

·        Trim all shrubs and trees so that doors and windows are in clear view.

·        Use clock timers to activate lights/radios at various intervals when away from your home.

·        Don't forget to lock and secure your unattached garage/shed as it should be considered a part of your own which often is a target for break-ins.

·        Don't leave notes on your door or on the apartment lobby directory.

·        Consider installing motion-sensor lighting in the front and back yards of your home.

Vehicle

·        Don't leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running.

·        Lock all doors and windows of your vehicle after entering and exiting.

·        Don't leave personal identification or valuables in plain view inside your vehicle.

·        Consider installing an anti-theft device and a locking gas cap in your vehicle.

·        Keep your garage doors closed/locked if possible with the locked vehicle inside.

·        Whenever possible, park your vehicle in a well-lit area.

Myths and Facts about Home Security

     Almost everyone has an opinion on trends in break-and –enters – why they occur or how to prevent them.  Here are some facts regarding a few myths about break-ins:

Myth:          Most residential break-ins happen at night.

Fact: Most residential break-ins actually happen during the day, when the majority of people are not at home.

Myth:          A chain lock offers good security.

Fact:           People buy chain locks in the belief that they provide adequate protection when answering the door.  But the fact is that chain locks actually offer very little protection against the threat of a forced entry, and can result in a false sense of security when a superior lock is disengaged (i.e. one inch deadbolt lock).  A wide-angle peephole on your door is far superior because it will allow you to see who is outside your door while preventing the person from seeing inside your home, and possibly breaking the chain lock.

Myth:          An alarm system is all that I need to protect my home and family.

Fact:  Although residential alarm systems do indeed offer an increased level of security and some deterrence to criminals, they should not be considered as exclusive replacements for home security measures, but should be used in conjunction with them.  Police do not directly monitor burglar alarm systems, and it may take a few minutes before the call is directed to the police by the alarm company.  Thieves most often only spend between three to four minutes in a home, and in most cases the criminal will be gone before the police arrive.
