“We continue to receive positive feedback from people in the downtown on recent Dynamic Patrol initiatives,” says Acting Inspector of Emergency Management and Business Continuity Ben Bolduc. “Speaking with business owners, employees and the people of the downtown during the initiatives allows officers to hear comments and concerns directly from the people who frequent the downtown the most.”

The next two-week Dynamic Patrol initiative will begin on Monday, November 29.

Dynamic Patrol is an ongoing initiative to increase police presence in local neighbourhoods and near businesses. Deployment of officers will take place as necessary in various areas of the community.
