Cobourg Police – Gathering In Cobourg Leads to Charges

In Police Blotter

The Cobourg Police Service issued six tickets as a result of a gathering in the Town of Cobourg in violation
of the current provincewide Stay-At-Home-Order.


On the afternoon of Saturday, May 1, 2021, police attended Victoria Hall, located at 55 King Street West, in
response to a gathering taking place in violation of the current Stay-At-Home Order.


The current provincewide Stay-at-Home order requires everyone to remain at home except for essential
purposes. All gatherings are prohibited, except for with members of the same household or one other person
from outside that household who lives alone.


Officers spoke with the group, engaging with them to ensure understanding of the current restrictions.
Officers clarified that those who continued to gather would be in violation of the existing order and would be
charged accordingly.


As a result, several people choose to leave, and those who stayed were issued provincial offences notices.
The Cobourg Police Service supports all measures necessary to limit the spread of COVID-19 and variants in
our community and will continue to work with local public health, municipal and regional officials to ensure
compliance.

Cobourg Police Service, in partnership with the Town of Cobourg By-law, will continue to be proactive and complaint-driven in response to the increased measures. We continue to respond to all calls for service and focus on the 4 Es – Engage, Explain, Educate, and Enforce. Those that refuse to comply will receive the appropriate penalty. Residents who have a concern or complaint regarding possible violations of the current order are encouraged to call the Cobourg Police Service at (905) 372-6821.
