East Al­goma de­tach­ment statistics for Au­gust 2018

The Standard (Elliot Lake) - - LAW -

Dur­ing Au­gust, the East Al­goma OPP re­sponded to nu­mer­ous calls for ser­vice and con­ducted nu­mer­ous hours of pa­trol time. Some of those calls were: 68 prop­erty and ve­hi­cle re­lated calls; two ve­hi­cle col­li­sion re­lated fa­tal­i­ties; 27 vi­o­lent crime re­lated calls; 47 prop­erty crime re­lated calls; and two drug re­lated calls.

In­spec­tor Yves For­get, East Al­goma OPP de­tach­ment com­man­der, wants to en­sure ev­ery­one has an en­joy­able and safe 2018 - 2019 school year.

Mo­torists should be ex­tra at­ten­tive and pre­pared to stop for school buses from Mon­day to Fri­day be­tween the hours of 6 to 9:30 a.m. and 3 and 6 p.m.

Ad­di­tion­ally, please watch for school stu­dents walk­ing to and from schools and bus stops. Al­ways give pedes­tri­ans the right of way.

Driv­ers are re­minded that fail­ing to stop when meet­ing or over­tak­ing a school bus is dan­ger­ous and could have dire con­se­quences.
