INCREASE ENFORCEMENT NECESSARY DURING THE EMERGENCY ORDER

Community Groups,

 

Despite several requests & warnings to social distance or self isolate (travel) etc., there are members of the public defying these orders & removing barricades, warning tape along with packing parks & beaches gathering in large unacceptable groups. 

 

This has caused the City of Toronto to request a significant increase in enforcement , to keep people out of parks, playgrounds, beach areas or from forming groups larger then 5 people.

 

Please encourage your members to share this email , please obey the law, we don’t want to have to use limited resources to chase people around whom aren’t following the guidelines.

 

THE PENALTIES ARE  SIGNIFICANT.

Subject: URGENT - HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN TORONTO

Community Groups, 

I am going to send out this link again, it has been improved to run on YouTube now. PLEASE EVERYONE WATCH THE VIDEO !

 

It is imperative that everyone know that this is becoming a “epidemic” not only worldwide but here in Toronto !

 

The community must know that girls being trafficked are not necessarily missing, some return home every day, they might be their own daughters or family friends or neighbours !

 

The MANIPULATION & FEAR these girls are subject to, prevents them from telling anyone, including police, even sometimes when we find them !

 

PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO & ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO WATCH FOR THE SIGNS OF THIS CRIME, IT COULD BE THE PERSON RIGHT BESIDE THEM !

 

THOSE WITH QUESTIONS SHOULD CONTACT ME DIRECTLY BY EMAIL OR PHONE.

NEEDLES FOUND IN PARKS PLEASE SHARE !

Neighbourhood Groups, 

Recently there has been more reports of needles being found in parks. It goes without saying that these present a significant hazard to the safety of children.

Here are some tips to protect your kids, 

 

-  If they find a needle, DON’T TOUCH IT !, call Police to come remove the needle.

-  Parents should walk around the play area BEFORE allowing their child in to play, therefore ensuring there are no needles.

-  DO NOT allow bare feet !

-  Work together with your neighbours to regularly check over your local park to keep it free of needles.

-  Report ALL incidents of found needles to Police by calling 416-808-2222.

 

If you have any comments or questions , please don’t hesitate to email me.

 

Thank you

To the 53 Division Community,

THE "SMART PHONE" CAUSING VIOLENCE BETWEEN KIDS & THEIR PARENTS !

53 Division is now investigating its second response to a call for a teen assaulting a parent! The reason, the parent took away their smart phone or tablet !

Therapists say it’s because of the addiction to Social Media which allegedly can be stronger than a drug addiction to some ! The chemical reaction youth get from the use of Social Media is so strong, to take it away from them in today’s society can be dangerous !

Sites like Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat, are a MUST for youth, to not be on them is totally unacceptable in their world.

When asked the reason for assaulting his parent, one of the teens said "my parents are NOT to touch my phone & they won’t get hurt" .

The effects of Social Media are being documented around the world, the chemical addiction of being "LIKED" or "FOLLOWED" is stronger than ever anticipated, causing calls to 9-1-1 to be necessary for everyday families!

We as the Police , recommend, monitoring your child's use of Social Media, limit the time online to prevent addiction, if you notice a problem, get help through counselling for your child, before a call to Police is necessary !

Watch this video !

If you have questions about the use of Social Media, please email Community Officer, Constable Timothy Somers, timothy.somers@torontopolice.on.ca  .

Subject:
GPS tracker 

Community Groups,

With the increase in vehicle theft, this GPS Tracker is something to consider !

https://soulfarsogoods.com/products/2018-magnet-waterproof-gps-tracker-car

Even with a factory installed GPS, thieves know how to remove them quickly, but this one YOU install it wherever you like, so the thief wouldn’t know where to find it !

That way you can call 911 & tell them where your car is located !

We cannot endorse any one product , but this one or one like it would be something to consider for sure !

PLEASE SHARE !

Thank you
