Editor’s note. There are at least 9 missing calls for service compared to the police map. Some of the calls the Cornwall police, according to their own data, are refusing to include in the blotter are calls for service for:
1 Sudden Death
1 Sexual Assault
4 Motor Vehicle Collisions

CFN continues to fight corruption within the Cornwall police service and their refusal to provide basic information and communicate in a prompt and professional manner which sadly they are refusing to do.

A graphic example of CPS misconduct and the bizarre response of one of their clients…
Between the inappropriate behaviour of too many Cornwall Police Service members, and the too many of their f’d up “clients”, Cornwall again presents itself as a dysfunctional swamp of ignorance and indifference.
Let’s Change it!
First of all they don’t have to disclose every crime on there web site and they shouldn’t unless it is news worthy Cornwall is the only hill billy town I know that posts on there website and reports in the news paper that a 12 year old boy was charged with shoplifting or a hungry person stole to eat instead of publicly shaming people for having to steal to eat let’s try and feed.
I wish you good luck getting the CPS to disclose more. But reading what they posted earlier “contains incidents that meet public disclosure eligibility in order to protect the identity of the victims.” you are in for a long, protracted fight. They will continue to hide the reporting behind that statement.
Hugger there are certain standards across the board that most Police Services abide by. For example when the sub machine gun was stolen from the armoury and not disclosed and other cases.
You can’t run a police service in the shadows, especially one that costs a community with less than 40,000 souls $20M per year.
While you never want to impede, even remotely, any investigation, media are partners normally with police. Without reasonable disclosure it makes it near impossible for police to be held accountable.
Here’s a perfect example of a release which is practiced now by the SD&G OPP and regularly in Kingston.
You can clearly see the different incident break down. That means that we media that aren’t lazy or corrupt can call the media person and ask a question or share some info.
It’s that simple. The bigger question is why the CPS refuse to do so, especially now that they have a media person?
Admin, I agree with what you said 100%. And the media are partners and they relay the info to the public. Total calls and breakdowns are needed from CPS and BPS. They should be held accountable. And what they release does not allow that accountability.
To Shame on cps…. no they don’t have to disclose every crime. But basic reporting like the OPP /KPS do should be done. Cornwall seems to report the same way Brockville does, just the “highlights.” It’s the CSF editor who choose what is printed, so blame the editor when stories like you said are printed. CFN just copies what they receive from the CPS. So, no blame can be put on CFN.
