Edgerton admitted that their relationship with city police isn’t quite what he hopes it could be.

That relationship got a little rocky when one former group member used his vehicle to close a road on a snowy night and began directing traffic in the dark.


Yep, that'll put wrinkles in an otherwise good relationship.

On a positive note, as someone else pointed out, they aren't out tagging streetposts and utility boxes like the little miscreant who wants to be known as CHIMES in my neighbourhood.


I agree. This is a bit goofy but it's based in some good intentions. Hopefully they'll get involved in a bona fide organization, get some real training, and do some real good in the future.

Apparently... umm... yeah... about that...

This is the first that I've heard about this group, I see they were established in 2011, but being in Peterborough, that's kinda far from Peel Region.

I see that they have a Fire Department type shoulder patch... they mention being "born and raised" around the Fire Department... Is someone going to check the plate and see if they live by a Fire Hall maybe? :ponder:

You know that they help people, because feel like doing it... >>> AS SEEN HERE <<<

They're finally getting kicked out of Mom's basement and Dad's garage.

The difference is that no one gets hurt playing this game......

Jeez... I happen to be a Medical first responder with St John, and this article is just embarrassing to look at... Someone please direct these kids to proper volunteer organization before one of them gets hurt.

Like really..... This is just silly, these kids don't realize what they are getting into here as far as potential trouble goes.... At least I know I'm just a glorified band-aid applier... Not some sort of Pseudo-Paramedic....

I can't help but notice the spelling errors on the "Deputy Chief's" >>> Twitter page <<< ... "Responce"... So his web link is broken too because of it... Durr...

Oh, and apparently the OPP don't have jurisdiction in Peterborough, as seen >>> HERE <<< I'm pretty sure Peterborough is still part of Ontario... :ponder:

The Peterborough PS have authority in Sudbury, too, it doesn't mean it's part of their "jurisdiction". The kid is actually correct.

The O Dots do have a Det right on the edge of the town at the Junction of Hwys 115 and 7, his little tweet doesn't say wear he saw the traffic stop. I have a friend who live's in the Peterborough, I saw the OPP black and white's driving through the town regularly. The kid is incorrect.

I am not saying the OPP are doing anything improper by stopping someone inside the city if they want to, the same way Peterborough PS might stop someone out in the county if they choose to. I am simply saying that both agencies have the same province wide authority. Likewise they each have their area of responsibility, a.k.a, "jurisdiction". The OPP cars in the city are undoubetly due to court, tracking down witnesses, members having lunch, etc etc. etc. However, I think if they started regular patrols and answering calls within the city the PPS might take issue with that, the same way the OPP would if the situation were reversed.
