As you may know, the Ottawa Police Service is currently investigating a shooting incident that occurred on March 21 in the area of Hunt Club Park.
I have been assured that there is no immediate threat to residents in the area. However, in light of this event I have been working closely with our East District Inspector and Community Police Officers and have requested that police resources be deployed in the community to knock on doors in the affected area.
I have also requested the presence on the Ottawa Police at the next meeting of the Hunt Club Park Community Association. The meeting will take place on Tuesday March 27 beginning at 7:00 p.m. at St. Thomas More School, 1620 Blohm Drive.
The safety of our community is paramount and Hunt Club Park is a safe family neighbourhood. You can be assured that we take these incidents very seriously and I am confident that the Ottawa Police are working tirelessly to ensure the safety of our communities throughout the City of Ottawa. We want nothing more than to see the perpetrators of these crimes apprehended, charged, convicted, and sentenced to the full extent of the law.
We are all partners in keeping our community safe. Anyone with information is asked to call the Ottawa Police Guns & GangsUnit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5050. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.
