It's #BellLetsTalk Day!!

On January 28, for every text message, wireless and long distance call made by Bell Canada and Bell Aliant customers, every tweet using #BellLetsTalk, and every Facebook share of that dayīs Bell Letīs Talk Day image at Facebook.com/BellLetsTalk, Bell will donate 5 cents more to Canadian mental health programs.

5 simple ways to help end the stigma

While 1 in 5 Canadians will experience mental illness at some point in their lives, the lingering stigma means 2 in 3 will struggle in silence fearing judgment and rejection. This yearīs Bell Letīs Talkīs campaign focuses on 5 simple ways we can all help end the stigma around mental illness:

Language matters - pay attention to the words you use about mental illness
Educate yourself - learn, know and talk more, understand the signs
Be kind - small acts of kindness speak a lot
Listen and ask - sometimes itīs best to just listen
Talk about it - start a dialogue, break the silence

Please share! ^tf

9-1-1 - IMPORTANT TIPS

o Do NOT program 9-1-1 in your telephone.

o The Toronto Police Service main telephone number is fairly easy to remember, however not as simple as 9-1-1. We recommend that you program the non-emergency number into your telephone so you always have it handy. The number is 416-808-2222

o If you dial 9-1-1 accidentally, please do not hang up. Remain on the line to let the Calltaker know it was a mistake this saves seconds and seconds save lives!

o "Lock it, before you Pocket". Always lock your cell phone and keep it holstered to avoid pocket dials into the 9-1-1 centre

o Unintentional 9-1-1 calls negatively impact our ability to answer real 9-1-1 calls for service

o Do not call 9-1-1 to see if itīs working

o Old cell phones (with the battery left in) can still call 9-1-1 without a plan. Please remove the battery if you are giving it to your child as a toy

o If your workplace uses "dial 9" to access an outside line, please dial slowly and carefully to avoid accidental calls to 9-1-1. We get MANY unintentional calls from businesses daily.

o 9-1-1 Calltakers ask many questions. These are NEED to KNOW, not Want to know questions. Please listen closely and answer each questions as best you can.

Telling someone to 'Suck It Up' or 'Soldier On' isn't helpful. Having #MentalHealth issues doesn't mean that someone is weak, it means they have an illness

One important note...
I want to emphasize that 55 Division is a safe neighbourhood. My posts are not to instill a "Fear of Crime', rather just be aware and take precautions by making yourself/property less vulnerable. Please Google "Broken Windows Theory", "Routine Activities Theory" These are two dominant theories of Criminology.
-If people have a fear of crime their actions have been shown to sometimes create an environment that increases crime even if the crime rate was not that bad...because they retreat indoors and "give their neighbourhoods away" But that's not gonna happen in this Division based on what I have seen on the facebook pages around here!

Folks, I would like to revisit the surveillance camera issue with some other concepts that may dispel some fears or misunderstanding about the issue...I also want to create some dialogue from you...
So here it goes:
Natural Surveillance VS. Video Surveillance
It's like comparing apples and oranges!
-"Natural surveillance" refers to people watching and keeping an eye out on their community. Video, is having cameras monitor an area/property.
-I want cameras for businesses and houses NOT public spaces. I do not want cameras recording at our parks etc. That's what the natural surveillance is for, hence my push for the 365 days of using our public spaces.
-The cameras are YOUR property not the police or government. YOU are the only ones who monitor and have access to them. Police will use to assist their investigations...once we request the video from you.
-Each week a Detective comes with a pic obtained from a camera wishing it was better quality or upset that the camera was not recording...
Thoughts please!

The Toronto Police Sex Crimes Unit is actively investigating a report of a sexual assault that occurred in the Lakeshore Boulevard West and Islington Avenue area on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at approximately 3 p.m. A 19-year old woman was approached from behind by a man.

Happy Robert BURNS Day
Born: January 25, 1759- Died July 21, 1796
Wrote Poems, Lyrics and other pieces.

Here is to the man who many don't know but know of his song once a year:

The poet and song writer of Auld Lang Syne in 1788
(Old, Long Since or Long Ago)

Scots around the world celebrate January 25 (Rabbie's birthday, born in 1759) with a Burns Night Supper, revolving around the haggis (To A Haggis), the whisky, and the toasts to the lassies. This has been going on since Burns' death over 200 years ago and, along with our singing of Auld Lang Syne each New Year's Eve, indicates the tremendous impact this young roué and some-time farmer has had on his country and culture.

33 Division - Toronto Police Service

We wanted to take this opportunity to share one of MANY "job well done" stories in regards to our officers at 33 Division going above and beyond to serve their community. This often happens with the officers, but the public don't usually get a chance to hear about it.On Tuesday December 16th officers Chow and Armstrong volunteered to attend a Threaten Suicide call. Once the officers were on the scene it was clear that the male was very lonely, depressed and suicidal. After talking to him for awhile they apprehended him under the Mental Health Act and took him to the hospital for treatment.Nine days later, on Christmas day PC's Chow and Armstrong were working the evening shift. They quietly took it upon themselves to put together a Christmas dinner for this same man and deliver it to his home. The officers left the meal as well as a card for him as they were unaware he was still in the hospital. When the man was released and discovered this gift he left a voicemail for the officers showing his gratitude. The man felt compelled to call in and express his feelings towards the officers going above and beyond the call of duty. He also advised that he had told many people of what these officers did and how people couldn't believe it. I would like to say believe it! this is just one example of the kind of officers we have at 33 Division and felt the public ought to know about it. Thank you Rob Armstrong and Wing Chow for all your efforts and helping with the lives of the people you serve. >kd

Local youth we work with are happy to assist while getting their needed volunteer hours for school. This doesn't mean a free event for personal events or parties, these must benefit the community.
