Ontario Provincial Police launches new online crime reporting
Victims of crimes such as theft from vehicles and property damage can now report
these to provincial police online. Ontario Provincial Police say the new Citizen
Self Reporting portal will allow the public to report select, non-emergency
incidents. An officer will not be immediately dispatched, which the force says
will free up police to focus on other, more serious crime enforcement efforts.
People will only be able to report incidents that do not involve an injury, a
suspect or evidence. If requested, an officer will be dispatched. The system is
meant to make reporting more convenient and police say it’s hoped more crimes
will be reported as a result. The system is available at opp.ca.
Canadian Tire to pay $7k to customer for being handcuffed to chair after refund
attempt Court was told the customer brought back the training wheels,
which were the wrong size, and presented his bill but was denied a refund or
exchange by an employee and the manager on the grounds they were no longer in
the original packaging. He then threw them on the ground and attempted to leave
the premises, but was intercepted by four security guards, who forced him into a
room and handcuffed him to a chair until the arrival of police 30 minutes later.
Police released him after hearing both sides. No charges were laid.
