Yesterday, the Government of Ontario announced new legislation aimed at directly combatting the increased spread of the COVID-19 virus in our communities.
This new legislation concentrates on restricting or limiting the mobility of persons for all non-essential purposes and also includes additional police powers. We are currently assessing this new legislation and its impact on our daily interaction with members of the public.
The LaSalle Police Service will continue to focus on compliance through engagement, education and, where appropriate, enforcement. Be assured, we will not be conducting random traffic stops or person checks for the sole purpose of enforcing the stay-at-home order.
We would like to express to the residents of LaSalle that your trust in and partnership with us is crucial in ensuring everyone’s safety and security. We ask that you assist us by continuing to do your part to abide by health regulations and guidelines to mitigate the spread of this deadly virus.
Acting Chief of Police
