Someone?s going to be in shit. Opps, I don't think the brass are going to like that one. I picture a conversation something like this followed: "Well sir, we secured the scene with an impenetrable barrier of yellow 3" police tape and we then left all of the marihuana safely secured behind the tape a...

Howard, you stole the words right out of my mouth. At best this is a he said, she said and it has Crown Opinion written all over it. Lacking any witnesses or evidence of any force being involved, this case would go nowhere. As the Crown's around here like to say for the more mundane day to day matte...

In MB, unless it becomes an issue of theft of vehicle, the vehicle gets impounded, regardless if the owner thought the person they gave it to would drink and drive. Having said that there is an appeal process, I think the application to have a hearing costs about $100-150. Then there are the tow and...

I heard that 'D' Division, will be supplying PROS to many if not all of the smaller municipal agencies in MB (with the exception of Brandon and us, obviously). The information sharing potential of this would be great, but I bet it'll take years to workout the politics between the agencies to set up ...

Just what the RCMP needs I?m sure, another acronym. :P

So what does PROS stand for?

Okay, first I?ll take my best guess??Police Records Operating System?

Thanks for the feedback. Two years eh, I was sort of hoping to hear 6 months or a year. On the bright side, I guess things are only going to improve and get better as time goes on.

Computer System Transition

For those who've been around for a while, you may remember a long time back I mentioned we (WPS) were going to be upgrading our computer system, from the system we've used the past 17 years. Well about two and a half weeks ago, the new ?Niche RMS? and ?Intergraph Public Safety CAD? systems "went liv...

Marcus, thanks for correcting me, clearly my mind is slipping as time goes on. Under the right circumstances over the years I've handed out one or two PONs for imprudent driving in parking lots, none have fought it. Usually, because for me to give such a ticket, they know they were being real asses,...

They're certainly not the swiftest cookies in the batch based on those messages, in fact they come across like teenagers and dumb ones at that. Having said that, firing them is not the answer. A trip to Northern BC for about 5 years at a fly in detachment (if such things exist in BC) would serve the...

Here in MB, the private property part of the scenario is not an issue, the HTA covers such offences. Doing donuts in a parking lot, depending upon the circumstances, can fall anywhere between Imprudent Driving (HTA), which is a minor offence, to Drive Careless (HTA), which is a serious HTA offence t...
