The Burlington Dispatch Information PDF has been released for the month of November. Each ward in the city receives a summary of traffic and crime concerns that have occurred throughout the month.

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, officers at #3 District Burlington seized several bicycles as a result of an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the #3 District Criminal Investigations Bureau through Ms. Angela Oliver at 905-825-4747, ext. 2374.

For the month of November in Ward 2, approximately 124 charges and warnings were issued; officers responded to approximately 44 property damage and personal injury collisions and made one impaired driving arrest.

Wednesday, November 29, 2017, a traffic study was conducted at Pearl and Caroline street to address complaints from citizens regarding drivers not stopping at stop signs at this intersection. The results showed that out of the 473 attendants of the intersection throughout an hour, 30 vehicles did “rolling stops”, while 9 vehicles drove straight through. It is important all vehicles come to complete stops to ensure the safety of all citizens.

Tips and information are provided in the November issue of the Burlington dispatch regarding holiday crime prevention for vehicle theft, online purchase safety and neighbourhood safety.

The Dispatch also provides crime statistics about all areas of the city, broken down by Ward boundaries.

For more information, and to view the entire PDF see: Dispatch – November 2017

Stay safe this holiday season!

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
