The North Bay Police Service has created a new four-officer Community Response Unit. The unit started October 19th with two officers however it will become fully staffed and operational on January 1st 2021.
This unit will provide flexibility for immediate response to concerns raised in North Bay and Callander.The new unit may find themselves performing duties from traffic enforcement to foot patrol in a problem area or assisting other officers with additional resources for an area having an identified crime issue.
The recently regenerated Bike Patrol was a successful program this past summer and they did engage with the community.It is anticipated this unit will continue to build on that success.
Sergeant Hampel (Photo) will supervise the unit and advises the members selected are very enthusiastic about being part of this new team.
