There were 52 calls for service in the City of Cornwall in the last 24 hours (8 am the previous day to 8 am the day of the release).


  1. No need to post the details of every service call. Just the ones that end up in significant charges being laid is enough. I would not want to read through 52 briefings on the calls for service.

    No Hugger there really is a need to be open and transparent. Here’s what Kingston does(and now the Sd&g OPP are doing it too:

    Kingston Police had 344 calls for service over the weekend of November 23-35, 2018. Of these, 253 calls occurred in the city central area, 54 in the west end, 18 in the east end, and 8 north of Highway 401. Some of these included:

    18 domestic calls
    3 assault calls
    3 sexual assaults
    8 harassment calls
    7 fight/disturbance calls
    15 undesirable calls
    2 drunk calls
    1 customer trouble call
    11 alarm calls
    4 neighbour dispute calls
    23 noise complaints
    5 missing person calls
    10 Mental Health Act calls
    8 medical assist calls
    25 assist citizen calls
    7 break and enter calls
    22 theft calls
    2 shoplifting calls
    5 mischief calls
    4 fraud calls
    20 motor vehicle collisions
    2 impaired driving calls
    5 parking/vehicle complaints
    14 driving complaints
    31 suspicious activity calls

    This way we media folk can query them. It helps the partnership that media and “professional” police forces have as it benefits everyone when more information is public as long as it doesn’t impede an investigation. Sadly the CCPS refuses to embrace this which is most likely why in the next election getting a quote from the OPP will be a main election issue in Cornwall. If you’re going to pay a premium price for a service you should get premium service. Cornwall is not getting getting good service right now.

  3. I agree to a certain point. But as I’ve said before, with different names…..Cornwall is not Kingston, Kingston is not Cornwall. Kingston has three times our population. If people think the CCPS is expensive then getting the OPP would be more expensive. OPP officers are the highest paid in the province, CCPS officers transfer. And we’d have to build them a new building. Agree to disagree.

    Sorry, again your 100% wrong. With arbitration and training an officer is basically an officer. There are some that are individually better, but all graduate to provincial standards. Management is another issue. We published charts. Again, SD&G OPP are nearly 1/3 per capita of what we pay in Cornwall. Same area. Same people. SD&G however has a much larger area to cover and more people. Again, simple questions aren’t being answered which is how speculation grows.

  5. An officer may be an officer, but the OPP is contractually obligated by their police union to be the highest paid police officers in the province. The startup costs would be obscene; new pay levels and a new building costs $$$. It might be what they are required to report under the police act. Can’t find that info out using Yahoo. We’ll never agree. So we agree to disagree.

    No, again, your 100% WRONG. There are other communities and info available. Again, if you don’t ask the right questions or follow the right process you don’t get the right answer.

    The City of Perth was quoted stating they saved over 25% alone in year one. It’s time for basic questions to be asked of the CCPS by council and it’s time for answers.

  7. You have access to resources I don’t.

    And as the police board and council are basically the same, save for a few add-ons, getting truthful answers becomes a lesson in futility. When did CCPS get their budget cut last?

    The province needs to look at a city/town’s ability to pay the wage hikes that are often arbitrated. When contracts continually go to arbitration the system is broken.

    Hugger the problem is that council has enough seats on the Police Board to ask the questions, but they refuse to. Like other depts in Cornwall they are given carte blanche by weak leadership that many times are gerrymandered into office as we have seen this election.

    Hopefully after the next hot mess than this term will be will maybe enough people be po’d to go full Brampton 2.0

  9. Jamie if you were to post everything that goes on in Cornhole that the police blotter holds all you would have are the crazy crimes going on in Cornhole and nothing else. People in Ottawa have lost their minds as well and are no longer the same at all. Wait until the economy collapses and there will be more news than ever before.

  10. Hopefully you’re right about fixing city hall. I know I’m pissed off. The names may have changed, but the results will be the same as the last two councils….disastrous!!

    Perth changed to the OPP 5 years ago. My concern is that of the one councillor who voted no—losing financial oversight of the police budget, since OPP budgets are set by the province, not the municipality.

  11. I’m extremely appauled in regards to the post on behalf of the warrant ,leading to the arrest of long Sault women. She turned herself in for one and to announce details concerning a matter that has not been dealt with yet is invasion of privacy as far as I’m concerned; not to mention get your facts right before posting accusations. Especially when trying to get there life in order for her kids.

    Hugger the OPP are like a menu. You control your degree of service.

  13. M. Malone…all Admin does is copy and paste from the CCPS website. The reporting of arrests and charges by most police services is done by most media outlets around the world. Your beef should be with the CCPS, not CFN.

  14. Then if we get to select from a menu for OPP services I pick “None of the above.”

  15. Jamie there is a recall on dog food and something about Vitamin D in the dog food gone wrong. Read it on One other piece of news is that there is a TUBERCULOSIS CASE AT RIDGEMONT HIGH SCHOOL HERE IN OTTAWA NOT FAR FROM WHERE I LIVE IN MY AREA BUT FURTHER DOWN THE WAYS. I thought that I would send some news on that one. I know jules is wacky and put it in the wrong place.

  16. Jamie does an excellent job and like Hugger said Jamie gets the names and the charges from the police department and nothing that he makes up on his own. Jamie is the best there is in reporting the news. I get a kick out of it with so many crazy things going on. Even here in Ottawa the people are mighty crazy in driving, walking, and I can go on and on and on. Jamie is #1.
