A BIG thanks to all elementary schools in Barrie that participated in the Values Influences and Peers Program in the fall term! Congratulations on your accomplishments, all of you demonstrated a great attitude and participated equally.

Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit is teaming up Douglas Ford tomorrow with the use of a drunk driving suit.
A drunk suit simulates the physical effects that alcohol impairment can have on a driver. The suit, which is made up of goggles with blinders to limit vision, headphones to impair hearing, and various weights to slow co-ordination and reaction times, is worn by a totally sober driver which allows them to experience the effects alcohol can have on them.
Please see the attachment to find out more about this event.
Barrie Police Service is requesting the public’s help, in attempting to locate a female, missing since Monday December 08th, from her family residence in Barrie.
MISSING: Shawna STARNINO, 19 years.
Female, white, 5’ 1”, 120lbs, thin build, with a light complexion, with long wavy light brown hair, wears small rectangular black frame glasses, last believed to be wearing a black ski jacket, with a hood which is rimmed with fur, and brown pull on imitation suede boots-size 7.
She is believed to be on foot.

Barrie Police Service would like to give thanks to the numerous members of our organization who have contributed to charitable organizations, sport teams and various fundraising events in our community throughout the year. During the holiday season many members are very busy with their family lives, and work, just like most other individuals.

Thank- you!
