Oct 30, 2023

An increase in reports received Saturday, October 28, 2023, to advise of vehicle break and enters in the area of Davidson Court and Thomas Avenue have prompted the Brantford Police Service to issue an important reminder for residents to ensure vehicles are locked when unattended. 

Reports received indicate various items such as clothing and money had been reported stolen from vehicles. Additionally, thieves caused significant damage to the vehicles in the process.    

At this time, the Brantford Police Service would like to remind residents that an unlocked vehicle can be an easy target. There are preventive steps that you can take to help protect yourself:
  • Take a few extra seconds to secure your vehicle
  • Never leave valuables or cash in the vehicle
  • Store items in your trunk or take them inside with you
  • Park your vehicle in a garage or in a well-lit, highly visible area
  • Purchase and utilize a faraday box or pouch to protect against relay and reprogramming vehicle theft
  • Make copies of important vehicle documentation i.e., insurance slips/ownership
  • Report suspicious activity. If you notice suspicious people or behaviours around parked vehicles, call police.

If you do find yourself the victim of theft of items from your vehicle, be sure to file a report with police. If you observe suspicious people in your neighborhood, looking into vehicles, we encourage you to report this to police immediately. When these crimes are reported, it helps to identify areas that may be frequently targeted and enables officers to increase proactive patrols.

 In an effort to enhance the preparedness and effectiveness of first responders, Brantford Police Services, in collaboration with Brantford Fire, Brantford-Brant Paramedics, and representatives of the City of Brantford Emergency Management Program, conducted a full-scale emergency exercise on Thursday, October 5, 2023. The exercise, held at the former Victoria Academy at 40 Richmond Street in Brantford, was designed to simulate a high-stress, real-life scenario of an active shooter situation.

These drills are a crucial part of our commitment to ensuring the safety of our community and the coordinated response of our first responders. By simulating challenging and high-pressure situations, we can assess and enhance our readiness to protect the lives and well-being of our citizens.

Police Chief Rob Davis emphasized the importance of such exercises in ensuring the readiness and interoperability of all first responder agencies in the city stating, "The safety of our community and our ability to respond in a time of crisis is our top priority. Full-scale emergency exercises are an invaluable tool for training and preparing all of our first responders to react swiftly and effectively in high-stress situations. It is through these drills that we fine-tune our response strategies and ensure that our emergency personnel are fully equipped to handle any critical incident."

The exercise, which involved a multi-agency response, tested the coordination and communication between Brantford's emergency services. It provided an opportunity for participants to evaluate their actions, identify areas for improvement, and refine emergency response protocols.

The Brantford Police Service and its partners remain committed to continually improving emergency preparedness, and exercises like this one are instrumental in achieving that goal. The safety and well-being of our citizens are at the forefront of our efforts, and we will continue to work diligently to ensure that our first responders are ready to protect and serve in any emergency situation.

Our thanks to the students from Six Nations Polytechnic and Mohawk College who volunteered to participate as actors in this exercise.
