We are closely monitoring the events that happened in Ottawa today. We are saddened by the acts of violence in St. Jean Sur Richelieu, Quebec on Monday and today in our nation’s capital, Ottawa.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those that have died and all Canadians who mourn today.
Chief Greenwood states:
‘There is no identified threat to our community. However in light of these recent tragic events we can assure our community that Barrie Police Service will be highly visible within our city and public areas. Barrie Police Service remains committed to the citizens of Barrie and the community; the safety of everyone is of paramount priority.’
We are asking the citizens of Barrie to be vigilant and if they witness suspicious activities to call police.
We will continue to monitor the situation with our community and safety partners.
