The Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Po­lice Ser­vice re­minds its res­i­dents to be aware that school have started. Please be mind­ful when you see chil­dren cross­ing the street and school bus driv­ers’ stop­ping to pick up chil­dren. Just a re­minder to slow down, al­lot your­self more time to travel to your des­ti­na­tion to en­sure your own safety as well as the safety of the chil­dren in our com­mu­nity.

A first of­fence for fail­ing to stop for a school bus will re­sult in a fine of not less than $ 400 and no more than $ 2,000. Ev­ery sub­se­quent of­fence will re­sult in a fine of no less than $ 1,000 and no more than $ 4,000 or to a term of im­pris­on­ment of not more than six months or to both.

A fur­ther re­minder that fines are dou­bled in Com­mu­nity Safety Zones. The Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Po­lice Ser­vice re­minds the pub­lic that by con­duct­ing en­force­ment in th­ese ar­eas we are hop­ing that the pub­lic will com­ply with speed lim­its and rules of the road.

The Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Po­lice Ser­vice is com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing the safety of its res­i­dents.
