Police Services Meeting on Nov 3rd

The meeting held at Bells Corners Public School on November 3rd was hosted by Officer Karin Montague, community liaison for Bells Corners and other communities.

A neighbourhood watch kick-off meeting will be announced on this website in the next month. The Lynwood Village Community Association (LVCA) and Westcliffe Estates Community Association (WECA) will make announcements when the date it set.

Also, the LVCA and the WECA will request a public meeting with the chief of police.  Updates will be shared on this website.

Attendance of the Nov 3rd meeting was approximately 100 people.

The major questions asked and answers provided:

  1. How to report a crime in progress, and should we report crimes (such as a car break-in) after the fact?
    • Life-Threatening Emergency or Crime in Progress: 9-1-1 (TTY 9-1-1)
    • Other emergencies: 613-230-6211
    • To report theft, property damage, missing person or stolen vehicle: 613-236-1222 ext. 7300 (TTY: 613-760-8100)
    • Community Police Centres and all other enquiries: 613-236-1222 (TTY: 613-232-1123)
  2. How does Bells Corners compare with the rest of the city?
  3. Drug dealers present in the neighbourhood
    • Officer instructed everyone to report suspicious behaviour (on foot, in cars, or from a house)
    • Statistics are used to allocate police resources such as patrols
    • Even after the fact reports are valuable
  4. Youth mischief, including/especially late at night
    • Officer instructed everyone to report all youth mischief before it escalates
    • Statistics are used to allocate police resources such as patrols
    • Even after the fact reports are valuable
  5. Property damage
    • Officer instructed everyone to report all property damage
    • Statistics are used to allocate police resources such as patrols
    • Even after the fact reports are valuable
  6. Theft from cars
    • Officer provided bright flyers to indicate that your car does not have valuable items
    • Officer instructed everyone to report all suspicious behaviour, car break-ins without theft, as well as theft itself
    • Statistics are used to allocate police resources such as patrols
    • Even after the fact reports are valuable

Specific information police services will need when reporting:

  1. Address or street intersection where activity is taking place
  2. If suspected perpetrators are arriving on foot or by car
  3. How many people are involved
  4. Ages of people involved
  5. Time(s) of day when activity took place or is likely to take place again

Also, offering police the opportunity to observe the activity from your home has been very useful in the past.

Call for Volunteers - Hockey Rink

The boards for the rink in Lynwood Park have been put up this week.  Time to plan for the winter!

This year the community association has arranged for the City of Ottawa to groom the skating rink, but we still need volunteers to help run the change rooms in the basement of the recreational building.

We are looking for 2 volunteers to work from 11am to 5pm Sundays.  Through funding from the city, there will be (small) financial compensation.  Please contact us if you are interested.
