The team at Police Station 9 are always there for our community, notably socio-community officers Vincent Di Angelis and Marie Christine Nobert. I appreciate the fact they are always there when I need to share or obtain some information.
Earlier this week Office Di Angelis set up an information kiosk in the lobby of Kildare Towers on Honore-de-Balzac. It is something Police Station does in certain large buildings during the year, giving residents a chance to pick up some important literature and ask questions. I stopped by to join Officer Di Angelis and converse with tenants. Having been the councillor for District 2 for more than 13 years, I know many of them already. The building is owned by Howard Szalavetz and managed by Pat Meisels.
There was some excellent literature warning people not to get trapped by con artists, such as credit/debit card theft, jewellery theft and contractor and grandson fraud. Another piece of information showed how to file a police report online. There was also a magnetized card with important phone numbers on the front.
Tenants in particular always feel comfortable when the police set up such visits. It is reassuring to say the least.
