Re: Police Officer stabbed in hospital – Ottawa

Condolences to the family of Const. Eric Czapnik, and members of the Ottawa Police Service.

Such a senseless act of violence by someone, whom it appears, was bent of taking the life
of the first police officer he was able to confront.

Rest in Peace Const. Eric Czapnik.

Re: RCMP and Versadex

Versadex is the CAD (dispatch) side of the equation. In my opinion, it is inferior to the older CIIDS system. :( Versadex is much like a DOS based system, versus CIIDS, which was a windows based system. I'm told that a Windows version of Versadex is coming but I have yet to see it. For a number of r...

Re: PC and Winter Tires?

Even here on central Vancouver Island we have winter tires put on the cars. Although we don't get alot of snow on the island, when we do it makes a real mess. It's just like bumper cars out there, you get into your car and takes your chances :cuss: Numerous PC's who have not had the tires installed ...

Re: Should you call 911 for non-emergency accidents?

[/quote] This is no longer the case. VPD set up an effective non-emergency number about five years ago.[/quote] Sorry - wasn't aware of that. Everytime I try to "educate" a caller on the use of 9-1-1, they tell me "when I lived in Vancouver we were told to call 9-1-1 for everything". We do several e...

Re: Should you call 911 for non-emergency accidents?

Stump you would be a person that might have some better insight into this angle. We have wonderful telecommunications technology today and we can see how 9-1-1 works reasonably well as it is simple for Joe and Jane Citizen to use (properly or otherwise....) so would it make sense to create an easy ...

Re: Should you call 911 for non-emergency accidents?

In one word "NO" . I have been a police dispatcher, and dispatch supervisor for over 23 years. The centre I work in is a PSAP - Public Safety Answering Point. We get ALL the 9-1-1 calls for police, fire, ambulance, and sometimes the coast guard. Calls are transferred via speed line to the appropriat...
