This must present quite the conundrum for Ben Isitt.  Fund the police to target cars?  

 

I live overlooking a busy intersection.  In order of annoyances from most to least: 

 

The constant heavy walking of my idiot neighbors;

The crack heads screaming their heads off or the drunks sitting in the bus shelter with their stupid LG XBOOM Bluetooth speakers cranking out intelligible rap music;

Busses (some of those new LNG ones make a god awful noise but many of the diesel ones are annoying too especially when they're slowing down just after speeding up and they make that god awful choking noise;

Harleys with straight pipes;

Drug dealers blaring rap music from their cars;

Kids in Honda Civics who think it's cool to put potato launcher mufflers on their cars

Emergency vehicle sirens;

Old guys enjoying their Porsches. (not at all annoying, just here for scale)

 

Maybe the druggies could stop leaving their heroin in our doorway?  Maybe Victoria could be a little less stabby?

#priorities

“fines of $109 will be issue“ Sounds like that should go along way towards priorities.

I find noise complaints exhausting: https://youtu.be/uDw-TVj3npM

When you read the headline, I thought it was something the dog did wrong.  Instead it "reported altercation involving a man with a weapon" and "an interaction occurred and a police dog was deployed when officers arrested the man."

as long as the dog gets its day in court it should work out fine.

Our History | Remembering Cst. Johnston Cochrane, BC’s First Law Enforcement Officer Killed In The Line Of Duty

 

Date: Wednesday, June 2, 2021

 

Victoria, BC – Today, VicPD officers and staff remember Cst. Johnston Cochrane, a VicPD Constable who was killed in the line of duty on or around June 2nd, 1859. Cst. Cochrane is the first law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in B.C., a murder which remains unsolved.

 

Johnston20Cochrane-1.jpg

 

Cst. Johnston Cochrane came to Victoria with his wife and children from Ireland, through the United States. In early June of 1859, he was given a warrant to serve on a suspect for pig theft. At that time officers were normally unarmed, save for a wooden baton. Cst. Cochrane signed out a firearm as this file was considered a dangerous duty.

 

He departed, on foot, and headed to the Craigflower Farm area. This was the last time he was seen alive.

 

When Cst. Cochrane failed to return, search parties were launched. His body was found near Craigflower Road. Cst. Cochrane had been shot twice and his service pistol was missing.

 

Despite an arrest two days later, no one was convicted of Cst. Cochrane’s murder. His widow received a small “public subscription”, as pensions were unknown at that time. Cst. Johnston Cochrane was buried at the Old Burying Grounds, which is now Pioneer Park. His gravesite is unmarked.

 

Today, we remember Cst. Johnston Cochrane.

Sooke taxpayers face $300,000 bill for police dispatching

Mayor says service should be a federal and provincial government responsibility

Jun. 4, 2021 

Sooke taxpayers could face a $300,000 annual bill for police dispatching costs within the next three years – and it’s a decision not sitting well with Mayor Maja Tait.

Mounties criticized for wearing 'thin blue line' patches at B.C. old-growth logging protests

June 5, 2021

Some RCMP officers who are enforcing a British Columbia court injunction to remove old-growth logging blockades on Vancouver Island are wearing the controversial "thin blue line" patch on their uniforms, despite an official RCMP directive against the insignia.

RCMP headquarters told the Mounties in October they could no longer display the patch depicting a black and grey Canadian flag with blue stripe through it while on duty.

The directive opened a rift between RCMP brass and the National Police Federation, the union representing nearly 20,000 RCMP officers.

The union rejected the directive and said it would supply the patches to all its frontline members and "assist in defending any member who faces disciplinary action" for wearing it.

New Brunswick’s Public Prosecutions Services announced Monday that no criminal charges will be filed against the police officer who fatally shot Chantel Moore a year ago.

Moore, a 26-year-old Indigenous woman, was shot by a member of the Edmundston Police Force during a wellness check in the early hours of June 4, 2020. Investigators said at the time that the shooting occurred after the young woman approached the officer holding a knife.

I would like to see our Police Chief assuring Victorians that the random attacks by homeless people and their criminal element are being taken seriously and they they are advocating to the crown and judiciary that the revolving door of 'punishment' needs to be addressed.

rather then.. "there's nothing to see here folks" "the general public is not in any danger"  "oh those are just crimes of necessity to live"  "oh you were just robbed, sorry about that... we can't do anything but i do hear there are prolific offenders in your area at the moment just a head's up you'll probably be robbed again"
