43 Division News

News from 43 Division


Break and Enters are on the rise this year, up 52% over 2013 and police are concerned.  There is a City-Wide Blitz. The officers are working in conjunction with other divisions and in other jurisdictions. The 43 Division Auxiliary officers are number one in the city, going door to door and speaking to 252 people giving them crime prevention tips. Flyers have been translated into Tamil as well. 


Robberies are down 30% over 2013 in 43 Division, but 0% is the goal. This decrease in 43 Division is a result of the great partnerships with the community and residents.  Collisions are lower than last year, but there will still be lots of enforcement. Check out the 43 Division Facebook page for details of where they will be. Yes, they do announce it. Reporting of collisions under $1000.00 is not required, unless there is personal injury involved.


Vehicle Thefts are up 38%. The Scarborough Town Centre is a Target Rich area, especially in the Christmas season. There are 410,000 cars there per day and 22 million visitors there per year. The 43 Division Auxiliary officers will be handing out their “Lock It or Lose It flyers. The Scarborough Town Centre has a great partnership with the Toronto Police Service.  Please lock your cars and put your valuables in the trunk to avoid being a victim of a crime.

News from 43 CPLC

The Family Skate Day was held on November 14, 2014 at Heron Park Recreation Centre with an estimated 350++ children, youth and residents attending. 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 that 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.


RIDE Programme 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 2015
