After a recent 43 Division Search
Warrant, stolen property filled the Brigadier Room at the station. Some of
the seizures included high end bikes, Ipads, computers, GPSs, a
motorcycle, and expensive cars seized outside of 43 Division and into York
Region. One hundred charges have been laid so far and there are more to
Break and Enters are down 39% this
year over 2012 and arrests have been made and property has been recovered.
Robberies are down 17% over 2012 in 43 Division and down 14% city wide.
This decrease in 43 Division is a result of the great partnerships with
the community and residents. There haven’t been any homicides in 43
Division in 13 months. There have been many collisions at the Scarborough
Town Center and there will be more in the weeks ahead. An area of concern
is Markham Rd., where there was a personal injury collision. An arrest has
been made. Lots of cars are left unlocked, providing a “Crime of
Opportunity” for criminals. Please lock your car to avoid being the
victim of a crime.
Parking – Complaints have been
received from residents on streets in the Centennial Community.
Commercial vehicles, trucks, vans and cars that are parked illegally, are
causing reduced visibility and making it very difficult and dangerous for
residents to get out of their driveways safely. Tickets are issued for
illegal parking on the street, across the end of your driveway and for
parking across the sidewalk. If you are concerned, the number to call for
parking enforcement is 416-808-4222.

News from 43 CPLC
The 43 CPLC Family Skate Day was
held on November 15, 2012 at Heron Park Recreation Centre with an
estimated 350+ children, youth and residents attending. All of the
non-skaters certainly appreciated the assistance of the numerous police
and auxiliary officers as well as from the student volunteers and Carlton,
the Maple Leaf mascot.
Student volunteers from Joseph Brant
P.S and from the East Scarborough Storefront, did a great job handing out
skates and had time to skate as well. The police car in the centre of the
ice was an added attraction for young and old alike. The assistance of all
of the police and auxiliary officers was very much appreciated.
Thanks are extended to all of you
who donated gently used skates which were sharpened and given out to the
children and youth who needed them. Thanks are also extended to Mike and
Catherine Klinck, Centennial community residents and owner/operator of
West Hill Pro-Sharp for sharpening all of the skates.
– The RIDE programme officers will be out in full force in December.
Please don’t drink and drive
Have a safe and happy
holiday season and a healthy and prosperous 2014.
