Which brings me to a tip usually promoted during the holiday season; the "Lock it or Lose it" campaign. Xmas shoppers who leave unlocked cars in parking lots are loved by these thieves. Don't make it easy for them!

Not to say thieves won't smash a car window, but others just hope to find an unlocked car to grab an item to sell for quick cash. Pass it along!!!

It may sound like I am a broken record, but folks please remember to lock your cars and don't leave valuables (GPS, cell phones, lap tops) in your cars.
Another rash of theft from autos this week. Maybe I am reaching all fb followers, so pass this along to all your peers!!

WE STAND ON GUARD FOR THEE...
The last 72hrs have caused you to reflect on what it means to be Canadian. Our nation stands on ideals built from human rights and the rule of law to renounce hatred and unlawful violence.

All Toronto Police employees who work and live in neighbourhoods embody a truth that race / creed / faith prove our nation´s tolerance and understanding that extremism is humanities burden not just identifiable groups. The Toronto Police Service´s ethnic diversity is an example of this virtue that we see in our service to you.

Extremism is not a Canadian value: Hate is not a Canadian value: Violence is not a Canadian value, so join us in preserving our way of life by recognizing the true cause of terrorism is that of EXTREMISM, a potential for any of us if fear overtakes the courage for peace for IN THE TRUE NORTH STRONG AND FREE. ~ds/4422

This is amazing. Just a helping hand can make a difference.

As we recover from some horrible tragedies this week, there are men like Sergeant at Arms Kevin Vickers and the Citizens and First Responders in Quebec and Ottawa who came to the aid of their fellow man and also this little boy that came to the aid of a fellow teammate to allow him to score a goal that he will remember forever. Even the opposing goalie celebrated the goal.

This is Canada from coast to coast to coast. We are a great nation full of great people. A few gutless COWARDS will not change the way we live. We each can make a difference.

Yesterday, we accompanied students from West Hill CI in Scarborough on a book buying trip for their library. It's nice to see so many young people still interested in relaxing with a book and reading.
The future is in good hands friends.

55 CRU officers attended St. Dennis school to talk to the local Beavers about Halloween safety.
-dark costumes
-reminding kids/parents about kids running across streets without looking for cars.
-costumes that may pose a risk (choking/strangulation) like capes etc.
-buddy system (trick or treating in pairs/groups)
-trick or treating in known neighbourhoods
-and of course sugar overload!!
We can all learn from the Beavers marching song by applying it to everyday life: "Be prepared"
(don't quote me on that, I vaguely remember that being their motto!) can anyone confirm??!!

This week has been a tough one for Canada.

Two brave men were killed by COWARDS. Self professed radicals whose acts of terrorism have only strengthened Canada's resolve to never give up.

On Thursday October 23, 2014, the sun once again rose over our great country and although deeply saddened by the loss of two heroes we will move forward in their names and the names of thousands of others who have fought for our great country. Let us NEVER FORGET them.

We have two new angels in heaven standing guard over us today.

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.

Helping all of us starts with helping one of us and if you can please do. http://mfrc.org/?s=david ~ds/4422

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?
