Project "Sunset" Enforcement Initiative wraps up
The Ottawa Police Service conducted a three-week enforcement campaign targeting street gang criminal activity. The Direct Action Response Team (DART) Unit and West Neighborhood Officers (NHO) focused in the west end of Ottawa. This Project Sunset campaign resulted in thirteen (13) arrests, fifty-one (51) charges, 18.55 grams of crack cocaine with a street level value of 3700.00$, 61.45 grams of marijuana with a street level value of 921.75$, two large knives, one machete, and one replica handgun. "This campaign proved successful when it comes to addressing community safety concerns," noted Staff Sergeant Mark Patterson, DART and Guns & Gangs. "The collaboration of two OPS sections for this enforcement initiative also worked out well."
