Police Crime Log

During our February General Meeting with guest speaker Staff Sgt Spanton several ongoing issues around criminal activity such as Street Prostitution, Drug Dealing and Consumption, Public Drinking and  Grafitti and other activities were discussed.  Staff Sgt Spanton requested that our community begin to log such activities and pass on a complaint form to his attention so he can direct community officers to area hot spots.  In April of 2013 we passed the following notification to all area contacts and asked for information to back reported complaints.

As a result we have compiled the following complaint form and issues ongoing issues around illegal activity and have passed it on to Staff Sgt. Spanton.  We have also left sevral messages for Community Policing Officer Marty McGlauglin.  Officer McGlauglin organizes grafitti clean up with High School Students as part of theri community volunteering requirements with the Toronto District School Board.  Our messages have not been returned.
