Shelburne Police Service celebrates community partnerships

May 10, 2018   ·   0 Comments

May 13th to 19th, 2018 has been designated as Police Week in Ontario. Police Week is about celebrating professional, accountable and effective policing across our province. It provides opportunities for police and the community to join together and celebrate policing and talk about the public safety issues that affect the health and safety of our community. As part of Police Week celebrations, the Shelburne Police Service has activities planned for the citizens of Shelburne to meet their police and help build strong community partnerships.

Coffee with the Chief of Police
On Monday May 14th from 10:00 to 11:00am Shelburne Police Chief Kent Moore will be at the Shelburne Tim Horton’s. Please join Chief Moore for coffee and conversation.
On Friday May 18th from 10:00am to 11:00am Chief Moore will be at Pete’s Deli for coffee and conversation. From 8:00am to 11:00am Shelburne police officers will also be at Pete’s Deli serving coffee. All coffee proceeds from this event will benefit the Shelburne Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics that takes place on June 1, 2018.

School events
Building a relationship based on trust with the children of our community is of utmost importance to the Shelburne Police Service. During Police Week, officers will be at local public schools serving hotdogs. Proceeds of the hot dog sales will benefit the Shelburne Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics that takes place on June 1, 2018. Also, Police Week coincides with the “Sharing is Caring” week at Glenbrook Elementary School. Officers will attend Glenbrook during breaks and give “tickets” to any children who are being kind to each other. Each of these events is an opportunity for our youth to interact with the police in a fun and positive setting.

Multiple cars targeted
The Shelburne Police Service was kept busy on Sunday May 6, 2018 after several citizens reported thefts from their vehicles. The investigation has revealed that in the overnight hours many unlocked vehicles were entered and ransacked while thieves looked for money and other items of value. As well, an attempt to steal a vehicle was made.

Shelburne police have obtained excellent video footage of the thieves, however, still urge Shelburne citizens to check their home security video or dash cam video and report to the Shelburne Police Service any suspicious activity that may have been captured in the overnight hours of May 5th into May 6th.

“Thefts from vehicles in our community are crimes of opportunity; don’t give them an opportunity to make you a victim. Take every precaution in order to make sure that this does not happen to you.”

says Shelburne Police Chief Kent Moore. Residents are reminded to “Lock It or Lose It”. Simply locking your car and placing valuables out of sight can be enough to deter would be thieves.

Anyone with any information about this or any other matter are urged to report it to the Shelburne Police Service at (519) 925-3312 or report anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1 800-222-TIPS.
