Kingston Police Assisting Coroner’s Office with Death in North End Fire
Kingston Police was one of many emergency and city services involved in an apartment fire that resulted in the death of an 87-year-old male resident.
At approximately 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3 Kingston Police responded to the apartment building of 107 Compton Street to assist Kingston Fire and Rescue with perimeter security, evacuation or any other requirements. Frontenac County Paramedics were also in attendance and Kingston Transit provided temporary shelter for displaced occupants. Victim Services of Kingston and Frontenac also attended to assist those in need.
It was later determined one of the occupants, an 87-year-old male, died. Both the East Region Coroner’s Office and the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal (OFM) were contacted. A 55-year-old male also received severe smoke inhalation, was transported by paramedics to hospital, and after being transferred to the Intensive Care Unit is expected to recover.
The role of Kingston Police at this time is to assist the Coroner’s Office in their sudden death investigation and to provide support to the Ontario Fire Marshal. If as a result of the Coroner’s investigation, and from any findings from the OFM, the death appears suspicious or deemed to be criminal in nature then Kingston Police will take a more active role in the matter.
Individuals forced to evacuate due to the fire can contact the Canadian Red Cross Disaster Management Team at 613-548-4929. The Salvation Army Kingston Community and Family Services is also available to provide emergency services for basic needs to individuals who have been displaced by the recent fire.

Citizens Police Academy Returns
Kingston Police is happy to announce the return of its popular Citizens Police Academy this spring and is looking for interested members of the public to participate.
Initiated in 2011 by the Victim Services and Diversity office, the fifth annual Academy has met with great success by introducing adults who live and work within the City of Kingston to the inner workings of the organization.
The Academy begins April 2, 2015 and will be structured as an interactive information sharing evening, similar to a night class. The Academy will be a two hour session from 6:30-8:30 p.m., offered every Thursday evening. Whatever motivation a citizen may have for attending this seven week Academy the end result will be a community member that better understands the challenges and responsibilities of policing.
The purpose of the Academy is to familiarize citizens with the Kingston Police. Participants will get a glimpse into the operations of the organization in areas such as traffic enforcement, criminal investigation, forensic identification and police training. Through interaction participants will quickly learn to gain respect and have a better understanding of the people, both sworn and civilian, who serve their community with passion and dedication. There will also be an opportunity for participants to provide feedback and suggestions to improve the Kingston Police.
The Academy is supported by the Kingston Police Services Board and members of the Kingston Police. Victim Services and Diversity Constable Chris Gobeil is looking for mature, adult, community minded individuals who represent a wide range of ages, occupations and reasons for participating. Participants shall work or reside in the city of Kingston. Security checks will be completed before selection of the participants, who will receive a confirmation email if selected for the Academy.
Application forms can be picked-up at the front desk of the Kingston Police station at 705 Division St or can be submitted electronically online by going to the official website at www.kpf.ca or by clicking here.
