Cobourg Police – Dynamic Patrol Update

In Police Blotter

The Cobourg Police Service (CPS) Dynamic Patrol is one element of the Spring 2024 CPS Downtown Community Safety Action Plan. It was deployed in the downtown area and surrounding
neighbourhoods and parks at the beginning of May and will continue throughout the spring and summer. This initiative focuses on increasing police presence, engagement opportunities, bail enforcement, warrant execution, and probation condition compliance in the Town of Cobourg.

From May 1st to May 20th , police conducted 102 foot patrols, responded to nine (9) suspected drug poisoning calls, and conducted 46 property checks within the downtown core, Victoria Park and east end towards the encampment. Twenty-seven arrests were made directly related to Dynamic Patrol. Further details on the arrests for outstanding warrants or bail violations will be released next week.

During this time, officers issued:

• 10 Liquor License tickets and/or cautions

• 16 Trespass to Property tickets

• 22 Highway Traffic Act charges

Dynamic Patrol is an ongoing initiative, and officers will be deployed as necessary in various areas of the community. In addition to enhancing police-related responses to ensure people feel safe, CPS continues to work with partners and community agencies to support all residents. The Homelessness Addiction Response Program (HARP) and Mental Health Engagement and Response Team (M-HEART) continue to connect with residents and conduct daily patrols throughout the Town of Cobourg.
