Chief says police focus is on community's well-being

Police Chief Ron Gignac outlined in a letter to the public regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, “the Belleville Police Service has been taking a tiered approach to enforcement with a focus on education and warnings concerning the prohibitions in place. As we progress through this difficult time enforcement action may become necessary, and has recently become necessary. This was exampled by a charge that was laid with a gathering of people on April 5. A charge was laid on a person who organized a group gathering and did not heed the direction of police not to make such arrangements and disburse.”
