maybe i'm out of touch with modern society.  but isn't a missing 12-year-old very serious?

 

 

 

 

Victoria Police Department hopes to find a 12-year-old girl last seen in the North Park neighbourhood Sunday morning.

 

Evelyn Fripp is described as a Caucasian girl with long hair, half dyed black, half purple. Evelyne is five feet tall and weighs about 120 pounds. Police say Evelyn was last seen in North Park Sept. 13 and while they have no indication she is at immediate risk, her circumstances are considered high-risk.

 

Evelyn’s family is concerned and officers are working to ensure the youth is safe.

Victoria and Esquimalt Police Board Extends Chief Manak’s Term Until 2024



Victoria, BC – The Victoria and Esquimalt Police Board is pleased to announce the extension of Chief Del Manak’s term as Chief Constable of the Victoria Police Department until 2024.



The new contract will run from January 1st, 2021, to December 31st, 2024. Chief Manak previously served as Acting Chief Constable from December 2015 to June 2017, after which he was appointed Chief Constable in a contract with a term of July 1st, 2017, to December 31st, 2020.



During his tenure, Chief Manak has made employee well-being and mental health a top priority, as well as enhancing the department’s connections with its communities while charting a future course for the organization through the publication of VicPD’s new Strategic Plan A Safer Community Together.



“Chief Manak is a proven leader who has successfully led VicPD since 2015,” said Board co-chair Mayor Barbara Desjardins. “The Board is looking forward to continuing to work with Chief Manak as we collaboratively face the opportunities that lie ahead.”



“Chief Manak’s reappointment comes at a time with significant changes and challenges in policing,” said Board co-chair Mayor Lisa Helps. “I am happy that the Board has decided to reappoint Chief Manak at this time, as his thoughtful leadership around issues of diversity and inclusion will be really important for the police department and for the community as a whole.”

They were Surrey teens, and I know stereotyping is frowned upon ... but they were after all - Surrey teens.

 

Joking aside, that was a dangerous situation that the teens created for themselves, who appeared to be making physical contact with the officers with intent to injure said officers.

Direct physical contact with an RCMP officer with intent to injure, or actually injuring that officer opens the door to pretty much anything in terms of an officer response.

Dangerous for the teens to generate that uncontrolled, kind of hyper-crazy swarming of RCMP officers ... anything could have happened as a result.

 

The RCMP officers in that video showed pretty impressive restraint considering what was going on literally right on top of them.

🚔Replica Handgun Seized After Officers Respond To Man With Firearm Near Quadra Elementary School🚔

From VicPD:

Victoria, BC – A replica firearm has been seized after officers responded to a report of a man with a firearm near a school this morning.

Just after 9 a.m., VicPD officers from the Patrol Division, Community Services Division, and the K9 Section flooded the Quadra Village area after a caller reported to 911 that a man had been seen brandishing a gun outside a nearby school. Lockdowns were instituted at schools in the area, including Quadra Elementary and an educational building, known as the Quadra Warehouse in the 2500-block of Quadra Street.

A public alert was issued through our VicPD Canada Twitter account, Facebook and our Instagram account and on our VicPD Connect app advising area residents and people at nearby businesses to remain indoors while officers searched the area. The Vancouver Island Warehouse school was evacuated, searched and cleared by officers.

During the search officers located the replica handgun inside a nearby vehicle. They located the vehicle owner nearby, who confirmed that he had shown the replica handgun to a workmate. The replica handgun was seized. A photograph of the replica is below.

No one was physically injured in this incident.

Officers respond to all firearms as though they are real, functional weapons until they can be otherwise determined to be replicas. Those who use and possess replica firearms are urged to exercise caution in transporting them.

During this emerging incident, alerts were issued using our free VicPD Connect app as well as our social media accounts. Download VicPD Connect to be notified during public safety incidents like this. https://vicpd.ca/vicpdconnect/

Officers commended School District 61 staff, including teachers, support staff, administrators and students for their professional, rapid and effective response during this dynamic incident.

This file remains under investigation.
