Police Action on May 23 called a “proactive response”

Last Wednesday afternoon and evening, numerous police and their vehicles appeared near the north end of Hilliard Ave.  Councillor Keith Egli happened to be at our community building for a meeting at the time.  He sought details from police, and shared the reply with us.

The incident involved the Direct Action Response Team (DART) and the Guns & Gangs Unit.  According to police, “this is part of the on-going proactive gang initiative response that is happening throughout the city. In this particular case, it is concluding an ongoing investigation. The community should not be concerned, alternatively, they should be pleased that the OPS is engaging in proactive initiatives to curb the violent incidents that are happening in our city.”
