The day shift was primarily a routine paperwork & catch up day. I did attend a couple routine calls and bylaw complaints. The Municipality of Delta’s Bylaws can be found by clicking here. The two main Bylaw complaints that tie up Police resources are residential noise (house parties and barking dogs) and construction noise (outside of permissible hours).
The shift was spent on follow ups and clearing off some paper work. I had to go out to Surrey Memorial Hospital and pickup some medical records as requested by Crown Counsel for an assault victim. One of the victims of the theft where we caught the suspect last block called in to report more property that they had found missing.
My apologies to everyone who follows the blog regularly, April was a very busy month for me both at work and at home. I thought I’d compile a post with the highlights from the month.
We’ve got a recruit assigned to our platoon and we’ve had a good month for her to get some great experience before she heads back to the Academy. She took on a few of the impaired driver investigations that I had. I also got reports and evidence back from a large on going file that I’ve had for the past few months.
I had a Reserve Constable (“R/Cst.”) out for the day shift and right out of the gate the shift gets called to a house fire, Delta Fire was already on scene and have a critically injured patient. My assignment was to setup a landing zone for the air ambulance in order to facilitate rapid transport. My reserve was part of the 2012 class and only has a handful of shifts under their belt so it was something new for them. We had a couple units with us to ensure the parking lot is shutdown and safe to land in but the majority of our shift was assisting with traffic control and the initial investigation into the house fire. We took continuity of the patient and once transferred into the helicopter we headed to Vancouver General Hospital.
