Police Beat and Smoke Signals

  • Mar. 16, 2011 11:00 a.m.

With a relatively quiet period to describe over the past week, Staff Sergeant Steven Wright indicated that a major summary was upcoming in the form of a year-end report for 2010. The report is scheduled for Sooke District Council’s Committee of the Whole meeting on April 4. Also to be presented by the staff sergeant will be a forecast of local policing activities labelled the annual performance plan.

 

Responders answered 12 medical calls in the period from March 6 – 13.

 

Filling out the activity sheet were 11 burning complaints, most relating to a large pile of construction debris at the development in the Maplewood Terrace area, off Firwood Road. A crew was dispatched to extinguish the fire when strong winds came up.

Rounding out the log book were a couple of single vehicle MVAs with no serious injuries, four false fire alarms, one chimney fire, one report of smoke in a building, and one burning appliance (stove).
