Good evening Toronto! Have you ever seen what is often referred to as a 'lazer' up close? It's a speed measuring device used for traffic enforcement.

The officer lines the red dot in the bottom right corner with a vehicle, traveling in either direction, and then pulls the lever to get the speed.
These are very accurate, and every Officer who uses it must be trained.

We hope these posts are informative to you.

Have a great evening, and drive safe!

Never forget that our troops are considered heroes around the world.


Belgian Lad Waiting for the Canadians!

A lone young Belgian boy is waiting to salute the Canadians. Our troops were attending a memorial service. What respect from a young boy, and the anticipation on his face as they march towards him is wonderful! Watch what they do for this little boy. Such class ..... they make us proud!!The "Eyes Right!" command is the greatest compliment troops on parade can pay and is reserved for dignitaries at reviewing stands.

ONE STEP AT A TIME...
Making "things" better begins with ideas, dreams, and beliefs that others can sometimes help you. Whether police partners, families, co-workers, and friendships we need support from others.

43 Division SRO program asks you look at the following link to the Malvern Family Resource Centre; East Toronto´s newest and best staffed addition for mentoring individuals and families to healthy CHOICES. David Drummond Program-Coordinator of the CHOICES program is raising money with his team for the United Way by climbing the CN Tower.

Amazing how to the point it is.

Alzheimer's is a terrible affliction.

Hopefully one day soon they will find a cure or a way to reverse it.

TRUTH, FICTION, or something in between...
Be wary of those who always know "truth" over others and unlike the tradition of adults telling kids their actions are either right/wrong or black/white in decision making, we learn through experiences that there are many truths depending on variables like age, knowledge, biases, etc. .

This said, 43´s own-Paul Rowe has identified an article about "violence" that can help us all think proactively of what to do if violence is upon us. Have a read and let us know what you think with your comments?

As the Crime Prevention officer at 55, I want to let all residents aware that Nov 2-8 is Crime Prevention Week. 55 will be taking part in some initiatives throughout the division that week speaking about safety tips focusing on issues within 55. This is an opportunity for you to learn about safety but also let us know what is a concern to you. I am a firm believer that we can prevent a lot of crime thru various "Target Hardening"
We will be setting up booths in different locations (to be determined soon)

Remembrance Day is fast approaching.

Soon our veterans will be out with their poppy's. Take the time to talk to them and thank them for their service as you buy a Poppy.

It is because of these men and women that Canada is free.

Don't need to go this far, but some break-ins could have been prevented. Make security a habit of yours and share this info with others.

Further about the recent night time break-ins...55 is strongly urging residents to take the simple extra steps to secure their homes.
-Lock all doors, including sliding doors at bed time(all floors, all rooms)
-Secure all windows (cut hockey sticks and place them on the sill to prevent window from being slid open)
-Better lighting (motion sensors are god bc they let you know something is moving outside...maybe a racoon maybe not)

60th Anniversary of Hurricane Hazel:
Emergency Services and Citizens Called Into Action in the Humber Valley.

On October 15 and 16, 1954, Hurricane Hazel struck the Toronto area with a devastating reminder of the power of nature. By the storm's end, more than 285 millimetres (11 inches) of rain fell on the already sodden ground, causing some of the most severe flooding in Canada's history. In its aftermath, 81 people died and over 4,000 families were left homeless in Ontario. The total cost of the destruction in Canada was estimated at $100 million, the equivalent of about one billion dollars today.

THE STATS:
300 million: number of tons of water that fell during the storm
155: Hazel's maximum speed (mph) in the Caribbean
81: Number of people in Ontario who lost their lives from the flooding
4,000:Number of families left homeless in Southern Ontario from the flood (1,868 in Toronto)
32: Houses on Raymore Drive that were washed away by floods
4:Magnitude of Hazel at the maximum rating prior to landfall on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane scale

In addition to making it a daily/nightly ritual to do a security check on your home, avoid having valuables in plain sight from outside of your house.

55 is again reminding people about securing their homes...whether on vacation, at work or even while home. There have been some recent overnight break-ins where entry was gained thru rear sliding doors that have been left unlocked. Make it part of your routine; like when you brush your teeth, check all windows and doors.

***SAFETY MESSAGE*** - Halloween & Trick-Or-Treating Safety Tips

A 'Halloween' safety message from Officer Alex Li...

Halloween is fast approaching, and children will be excited to go door-to-door to `Trick or Treat´. But before they do, as parents & guardians, please remind yourselves to do the following before we let our little `ghouls & goblins´ out for that night.

o First of all, dress for the weather. As Halloween is in the later months of the fall season, it is usually cooler/cold outside, and it could possibly rain as well. Therefore, have jackets, or costumes that will keep your children warm. Also, as the parent/guardian, if the weather calls for it, have an umbrella in hand just in case.

o When it comes to costumes & masks, a safety concern is visibility. Please ensure that these masks/costumes have clear sight lines, so that your children can see clearly when crossing the roads, or walking up steps to ensure their safety. Reflective costumes are best, because children can be easily seen by motorists, and other parents/guardians.

o My favorite tip is to carry a FLASHLIGHT!!! Traditionally kids go out `Trick or Treating´ in the evening time, and as such, daylight is an issue. Both children & parents/guardians should carry some type of lighting device to help light the way, and of course provide extra security for the children while they go out through the night `Trick or Treating´.

o BUDDY SYSTEM works best. If you have a group of kids, keep them together. Strength in numbers for their safety. If your child does not have a fellow `Trick or Treater´ then you will be their buddy!!! Do your best to stay away from dark spots/areas like parks, alleyways, laneways etc. Most criminal offenses occur in poorly lit or dark areas. Please keep children in well-lit streets, and always have clear sight of them. If there is a home that is poorly lit, or dark/dangerous elements, just skip that house and go to the next.

o Lastly, we know the children can´t wait to devour their treats. But before they do.. PLEASE, PLEASE check their candies/treats before allowing them to eat them. As parents/guardians, it is always a safe bet to check through their loot bags, to ensure their safety before allowing them to go through the bag themselves. Better safe than sorry!!!

I wish everyone a 'Happy & Safe' Halloween!!!

BOO!!!

Cheers,

Officer Alex a.k.a. 'Iron-Cop'
