Police were busy overnight with a steady stream of calls
THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police were kept busy last night. One of the most common calls for officers in our community is dealing with ‘Quality of Life Calls’. Over the past 24 hours, police officers were called out for thirty- Quality of Life calls. Those included 12 disorder calls, and 20 liquor calls. There were only two assaults over the past twenty-four hours, and only one weapons offence..
Police were kept busy in the downtown Fort William Business district with several calls in the 500 Block of Victoria Avenue. Police were on duty very early on Victoria Avenue East to keep the peace as some people were still going hard on their Saturday night long after the bars closed down.
This morning, the aftermath of a Saturday night can be seen. There are broken alcohol bottles, blood, clothes left all over the downtown core, and sadly a lot of evidence of the abuse of drugs, mouthwash drinking, and fights left to make our beautiful downtown core on the south side look pretty battered and bruised.
There were ten domestic disputes handled by Thunder Bay Police over the reporting period as well.
There are also reports on social media of more egging incidents along May Street from over the weekend. Thunder Bay Police Officers John Walmark and Larry Baxter have shared that one of the keys in combatting egging, which is an assault, is to make sure to report the incidents to police.
You can contact Thunder Bay Police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 623-8477 or www.tipsubmit.com. The comment from Police is that to help end this sad continuing crime is to report the incidents.
