Well ladies and gentlemen, this will be the last post for 2012, the first year for this blog. December has been fairly short on updates, it’s been a busy month both at work and at home with the family.
On the home front, we’ve added a new member to our family with the adoption of Major. A 5 month old German Shepard mix that we fell in love with at the Delta Community Animal Shelter. My wife has never had a dog, and our boys are still pretty young so it’s been a bit of an adjustment but Major is settling in very well and is a part of our family. He’s as goofy as our boys are with the energy to match!

We received a call that interrupted briefing, a report of a possible prowler in the early morning hours. Several of us headed towards the house including our K9 officer.

There’s no doubt the complainant heard something and it was better to be safe than sorry. Continue reading Coroner’s report→
It was a fairly routine day, we spent some time getting settled in with our new Sergeant. I took a handful of routine calls and worked on 2 reports to crown counsel for charge recommendations. I did assist one family with a firearms pickup. An elderly family member could no longer care for the firearms and no one else had a valid firearms license. I secured the firearms and lodged them for safekeeping for the time being so the family has one less thing to worry about in a difficult time.
