Important safety tips from Toronto Police Services
We wanted to make you aware that there have been several swarmings in the area surrounding the college. We will be talking to the boys at the college but we ask you to please take the time to have a conversation with your son and review the following advice from Constable Somers, our community liaison officer.
These steps can help keep you safe:
- Don’t resist a robbery, when asked for phones, wallets, purses etc., give it to them, it’s only property, your safety is the priority;
- Take notice of the descriptions of the suspects, what they are wearing, what they say, possible “accents”, how they approached, where they went after the robbery (direction of travel) along with possible vehicle descriptions;
- CALL 9-1-1 immediately;
- If there are people around when they approach, yell for help, make noise to attract attention to you;
- Whenever possible walk in groups or with at least one other person.
