POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 19 Local Police Officers Honoured 28 LOCAL OFFICERS RECEIVE LONG-SERVICE AWARDS IN HALIFAX By Jennifer Vardy Little STELLARTON – It was Oct. 14, 1971. It wasn’t a day that went down in history, but it’s a moment in time that inspector Hugh Muir will never forget. For weeks before, he’d sat in the passenger seat of a police cruiser, watching and learning from an experienced officer. But on that day 37 years ago, Muir sat in the driver’s seat and headed out on the streets of Toronto by himself. “I remember it was a very busy day – nothing really of consequence, but it was a day of pride for me,” Muir recalled. “There I was, a young fellow from a small town in Nova Scotia, driving around on my own in the big Several Pictou County officers were honoured Tuesday in Halifax by the justice minister. Some of the 25-year award recipients include, from left, in front: Westville Police Chief Don Hussher, Stellarton Inspector Hugh Muir and New Glasgow Police Chief Delaney Chisholm. In the middle row are: New Glasgow Sgt. Duane Rutledge, Westville Sgt. Robert Stewart and Trenton Police Chief Bob White. In the back are: Westville Sgt. Howard Dunbar, Westville Const. Robert Chisholm and Trenton Const. Hughie Palmer. CNS Photo “These inaugural awards recognize our longest-serving members who deserve our support and thanks for their public service.” Premier Rodney MacDonald streets of Toronto. I’d driven around before, but it was the first time I was in charge of the vehicle and making all the decisions and couldn’t look across the seat to a senior man or woman and ask what they’d do.” Back then, police officers only had to be five foot 10 and have a Grade 12 education. Now, of course, that’s all changed, Muir said, where the emphasis is more on brains than brawn. Trenton Police Chief Bob White was one of a dying breed of officers who joined the police force by walking in off the street. It’s something that would never happen today, but previously, they’d be hired first and trained later. Police work has changed over the years as well, says the 38-year veteran officer. Over the past few decades, scientific innovations like DNA have opened new doors, while co-operation between agencies has changed the scope of the job. “There’s a lot more co-operation and support now,” says White. “Between departments, between children’s aid, victim’s services, the court – and many more. Years ago, you didn’t share that information, like you do today. That’s what gets the job done today.” On Tuesday, Muir and White were among 28 Pictou County police officers to receive long-service awards at a ceremony in Halifax. “These inaugural awards recognize our l o n g e s t - s e r v i n g members who deserve our support and thanks for their public service,” said Premier Rodney MacDonald. The provincial program recognized officers who have served in the province for 15 and 25 straight years. It also represents years of dedication said New Glasgow Police Chief Delaney Chisholm, who has 35 years of service. “It’s certainly a privilege to be honoured for long service by the province,” said Chisholm. “You don’t get into police with the aspiration of getting a medal – you do it with the hope that you can help people, just make some little difference in society.” And the recipients are… 15-YEAR RECIPIENTS: New Glasgow Police Service Sergeant Blair Bannerman Sergeant Stephen Joseph Chisholm Corporal Stephen J.

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 21 Traffic Study Indicates Cell Phones Still Abused By Debbi Harvie When the new cell phone ban came into effect April 1, prohibiting motorists in Nova Scotia from using a hand held cellular device while driving, many motorists began abiding by the new law. A recent survey on East River Road in New Glasgow, however, indicates that four months later, people are less conscious about abiding by the law. “The number of cell phone infractions has increased; it may simply be due to the fact that people think they won’t get caught, they think it’s not being enforced or they have just forgotten about the law and it is a habit, as common as turning on the stereo in the car,” says Const. Ken MacDonald of New Glasgow Police Service. The survey was conducted by summer students at New Glasgow Police Service. The survey, over four days last month at a busy intersection involved one hour each day during the lunchtime rush. Students counted the number of vehicles driving through the intersection and recorded the number of drivers using their handheld cell phones while driving. Out of a little more than 3,000 vehicles, 56 people over the four days were recorded using the devices while driving. Originally Published August 6, 2008 Pictou Advocate Truro Cops Cruisin’ in Style Vehicles win second place in beauty contest Truro police service’s cruisers came in second for best looking police vehicle in a national contest featured in Blue Line Magazine, a monthly law-enforcement publication. “My Assistant put the magazine on my desk Monday and pointed out the contest,” Truro Police Chief David MacNeil said. “I said our new detailing on our cruisers was just as good as the first-place winner, and my assistant agreed.” He paused. “Then we opened the magazine and saw our vehicles were tied for second place across Canada,” Chief MacNeil said with a laugh. The Truro cruiser’s white body with swooping black and blue lines across the sides tied with the Sûreté du Québec vehicle, and the first-place winner was the York Regional Police (Ontario) cruiser. The Quebec and Ontario designs also incorporate bands of colour as distinguishing marks. “Truro was recognized for its sweeping graphic design and excellent use of a drop-shadow effect while still maintaining readability,” the article says. The design was devised with help from a local sign company, Vi-Tech Signs. “They did a really good job on the vehicles, and we’re really pleased with the design,” Chief MacNeil said. By Mary Ellen MacIntyre Truro Bureau “That’s a very high number in terms of traffic safety,” says MacDonald. MacDonald says the reason the law was put into place was because cell phones have been attributed to causing motor vehicle collisions because they cause a distraction for the driver. “The Highway Safety Research Center conducts traffic studies across North America and found people using cellular devices are two times as likely to be involved in a motor vehicle collision than someone not on a cell phone because it creates a distraction,” says MacDonald. He says many people will come to a stop sign and begin talking on their cells. Although the car is not in motion, it doesn’t mean you can use your phone at a light or stop sign. “We encourage people to pull to the side of the road when and where it is safe,” he says. Under the MVA, a first offense for using a handheld cell phone while driving is a fine in the amount of $164.50, a second offence is $222 and a third and subsequent offences are $337.

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 25 POLICE TRAINING COSTS TIME AND MONEY By Frank Zakem commentary I am old enough to remember that in order to get hired on the city police force, you had to be over 200 pounds, be a good hockey player and have a connection at City Hall. Thankfully things have changed over the years. Policing has become an important profession that requires unique qualifications of those desiring to enter the field. When I was elected to city council in 1964, training for police officers in the region was inadequate. Police officers were often trained on the job or through short courses arranged by their departments. At the annual meeting of the Maritime Provinces Chamber of Commerce in Charlottetown in June of 1970, the chief of police for te City of Chatham, N.B., Dan Allan, put forward a resolution asking that support be given to establish formal training for police officers in the region. I represented the city at the chamber meeting and I became very interested and excited with Chief Allan’s resolution and the support the chamber gave. I was chair of the police committee at the time. Chief Sterns Webster and I were quite anxious to provide our police some formal training. I joined Holland College in 1970 to set up the business administration program. Chief Webster and I approached Dr. Glendenning and discussed police training and Chief Allan’s resolution. We invited Chief Allan to the college to discuss his vision, an advisory committee of the police was established, and an analysis of the skills required for municipal policing were identified. The college moved quickly. It hired W.J.R (Mac) MacDonald who was able to professionally put together a one-year program. In february 1971, The First 15 students, including three females, began their training in the new police technology program at Holland College. The police program went through a lot of ‘growing pains’ but eventually became the Atlantic Police Academy funded by the four provinces and is now recognized by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the Canadian Professional Police Association. I was prompted to write this letter when I read that the Charlottetown Police Report identified that the police required more training. If you read the courses required for the current cadet program you will find the following outline: •Police vehicle operation and speed measurement devices. •Police reporting systems and computer literacy. •Occupational safety for police. •Intervention and use of force: restraints and intermediate weapons. •Judgmental use of force simulation training. •Police firearm proficiency and tactical training. •Police physical abilities development. •On the job training workplace experience program. •Law; criminal code and Federal Statues 1 and 2. •Principals of traffic services. •Psychology: Police applied social sciences. •Sociology: Police applied social sciences and community based policing. •Criminal investigations 1 and 2. This seems like a very comprehensive program and should produce a good qualified police officer. I could be wrong, but the problem, as I see it, is that this is only a 25-week program and 10 of those weeks are on-the-job training. That leaves 15 weeks for all the other courses. There is no way you can do justice to the profession in 25 weeks. My recollection is that our first cadet program was a one-year program. Even that was too short 37 years ago. With more complex problems in our society such as drug problems, family breakdown and disputes, sensitivity to our diverse population and the importance of communications between the police and the public, one would think that the 25 week program for police training would be far from adequate. One of the big problems is the cost of training. It costs $16,250 tuition. Add on room and board and the total comes to almost $25,000. Double the time of the training and you can almost double the cost of training. Next to our family, church and school, the police profession will likely have the most impact on our daily lives. We owe it to our citizens to have a well-trained proficient police department and we owe it to our police to ensure they have the opportunity to keep up and improve their skills. It’s time to think outside the box to see how the 25week cadet program can be expanded to allow the cadets more time to cover their courses. At the same time there should be, if it is not already in place, an in-house refresher course to help our police to keep abreast of the latest advances in the police field. Frank Zakem is a former Mayor of Charlottetown.

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 27 Area police plan to step up traffic patrols as students head back to school New Glasgow – While dropping your child off at school next week don’t be surprised if you get a tap on your window by a man or woman in uniform. With the start of the school year comes an increase in the number of pedestrians and vehicles on the road You may notice over the next couple weeks an increase in police presence in and around schools. Extra police will be assigned to monitor school zones, handing out tickets to motorists who fail to yield to school buses and crosswalks. It is all part of the launch of New Glasgow Police Service’s Operation School Zone Safety. “The safety of students returning to school is our top priority this time of year,” says New Glasgow police officer Const. Ken MacDonald. “The public hasn’t seen a school bus in two months, so there is bound to be some violations.” In fact, a 2006 study by Nova Scotia Safety Council revealed 401 incidents where a motorist passed a bus illegally over a 10 day-period. “That’s a huge number,” says MacDonald. Under the Motor Vehicle Act, failing to stop for flashing red school bus has a first offence fine of $394.50, which increases to $682 for the second offence and $1,257 for the third and subsequent offenses. There’s a $279.50 fine for motorists found to exceed the 50 kilometer speed limit through a school zone. “The probability of an accident happening sharply increases with the start of the school,” says MacDonald. “So be on the lookout and pay closer attention when in areas populated by students.” By Sarah Regan The News Fast facts about back to school traffic Number of bus runs a day in Nova Scotia: . . . . . 4,447 Number of students transported daily: . . . . . . . . 95,969 Kilometers traveled daily: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 163,348 (close to 30 million annually) Source – Nova Scotia Safety Council Const.

Rebecca Heighton, who has served with the New Glasgow Police Service for the past two years, is the new school resource officer. Heighton’s job is to educate, mentor, counsel and advise students on police-related matters. She will also coach the girl’s hockey team and assist in intramural sports. “I’m really excited to start,” says Heighton. “I got to have lunch with a few of the students yesterday and got the impression from them they are looking forward to having an officer around to answer any law related questions they may have.” Heighton’s first day will be today. She will be introduced to faculty and staff during an assembly Friday. She will also work as a resource officer for the feeder school at New Glasgow Junior High and the Adult High School. “Rebecca is actually a perfect fit for this position,” says Con st. Ken MacDonald, New Glasgow Police Service. “She is eager to work with youth, which is why she was chosen.” Heighton is the ‘first police officer in Pictou County to be assigned to work at a school full time. Funding for her position came from the Department of Justice’s commitment to put at least one police officer in all municipalities as part of the Boots to the Streets program. “Const. Heighton is going to be very much a part of our school,” says principal Eileen English. “I think it will give students a chance see a police officer in a different light. Plus, maybe she can help when we have parking issues.” Const. Rebecca Heighton is the new school resource officer at North Nova Education Centre. She is the first officer in Pictou County to be appointed to a school full time. In preparation for the start of the school year, RCMP have assigned part time school liaison officers to each of the 13 schools policed by the RCMP within Pictou County and the Town of Pictou. The 18 RCMP members, including two DARE officers, will work to strengthen the relationship between police and youth.

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 39 Impaired Driving The Facts: Impaired driving contributes significantly to injury and loss of life. It is a leading criminal cause of death in Canada. Over 34% of motor vehicle fatalities involve alcohol. Direct and indirect costs of alcohol-related crashes in Canada are estimated to be $7.52 billion annually. The operation of any motorized vehicle in Canada legally requires the driver have a blood alcohol concentration under the legal limit of .08 %. Results of a MADD Canada survey showed that 78% of Canadians personally have known someone who has driven a vehicle when they thought they were over the legal limit and 4 out of 10 Canadians acknowledge that they have driven a vehicle when they believe that they were legally impaired. That Was An Expensive Drink! (penalties and fines) Impaired driving can not only have deadly effects and cause suffering of individuals and their families, but perhaps not so well-known is the actual cost to an impaired driver who is convicted for even a first offense. The following information, taken from the Ministry of Transportationís “Break The Law Pay The Price” brochure (2003), itemizes the costs involved in an impaired driving conviction: PUBLIC HEALTH Grey Bruce Hea l th Uni t ITEM COST LEGAL COSTS (estimated range) $2000 - $10000 CRIMINAL CODE FINE $600 Back on track PROGRAM $475 LICENSE REINSTATEMENT FEE $100 INCREASED INSURANCE (estimate) $9000 ($3000 extra per year for 3 years) IGNITION INTERLOCK $1300 TOTAL MINIMUM COST* $13475 (plus applicable taxes on some items) ACTUAL COSTS MAY BE HIGHER *Other potential costs include property damage, loss of employment income and insured and uninsured medical costs. Ontario leads the way in combating drinking and driving through some of the toughest laws and programs in North America, including: • Immediate license suspension • Stiff fines • Longer suspension periods • Mandatory alcohol education and treatment program • Vehicle impoundment • Ignition Interlock program (taken from MTO “Break The Law Pay The Price” brochure, 2003)

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 41 The Responsible Host In May 2006, the Supreme Court of Canada passed its decision on a tragic impaired driving case: social hosts of parties do not owe a duty of care to members of the public who may be injured by an intoxicated guestʼs conduct. In the early hours of January 1, 1999, a drunk driver crashed head-on into a car, killing a young man and seriously injuring a young woman, who is now a paraplegic. The woman tried to sue the hosts of the party which the driver had just left. The event that led to the crash was a New Yearʼs party. However, many other occasions trigger parties — for example, the Stanley Cup and the Grey Cup. In fact, impaired driving peaks in the summer, when people drink at outdoor terraces, festivals, golf, barbecues and other vacation activities. Whatever the Supreme Court decides, the Canada Safety Council recommends that party hosts monitor and supervise the service and consumption of alcohol. If you plan to host a party, check your insurance to see if it covers any incident that may occur on (or as a result of actions on) your property. The Canada Safety Council offers some practical advice: 1. Either donʼt drink or limit your own consumption of alcohol so you can be aware of how much your guests are drinking. 2. Know your guests – it is much easier to track the changes in behaviour of those you know. Inviting strangers increases risk. 3. Monitor and supervise the serving of alcohol. Designate non-drinkers to do this. A “bartender” should control the size and number of drinks. 4. Keep the focus off alcohol. Serve a lot of food that has protein and fat – salt encourages more drinking and sugar does not mix well with alcohol. For drinks, offer non-alcoholic choices. 5. See guests in and out. Greet all guests on arrival and departure, taking the opportunity to assess their condition. 6. If a guest is drunk, encourage him or her to give you their car keys. Buddy up with a friend to persuade the intoxicated person to take a cab. 7. Keep the phone numbers of cab companies handy and tell the guest that a cab has been ordered. Donʼt give the option to refuse. 8. If the guest is very drunk, keep that person with you until they have sobered or can be left with a sober responsible person. 9. Only time will sober the person, not more fluids or food. Offering a spare bed is a good recourse. 10. If the person refuses to hand over the car keys or spend the night at your house, call the police. This may seem drastic, but it may be the choice between an upset friend or far more tragic consequences. Having a plan helps you prevent problems (or at least handle them in the least unpleasant way) and hopefully enjoy your own party. © 2006 Canada Safety Council http://www.safety-council.org Canada Safety Council C A N A D A ’ S V O I C E A N D R E S O U R C E F O R S A F E T Y

POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 43 Blood Alcohol Limits: Canada and the World The federal government appears set to re-enter the longstanding debate about whether to reduce the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for impaired driving in the Criminal Code of Canada. The permissible BAC limit in the Criminal Code is .08 (80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood).Some advocate a lower criminal limit of .05 (50 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood). They argue that Canada lags behind other countries in its fight against impaired driving, and should follow an international trend to legislate a .05 limit. Traffic Code or Criminal Code In Canada, two levels of government deal with impaired driving. The federal Criminal Code is applied at BACs of .08 and over. In addition, nine of Canadaʼs 13 provincial and territorial jurisdictions impose administrative licence suspensions on drivers whose BAC is under .08. Those drivers immediately lose their licence for four to 24 hours, longer with subsequent violations. Driving with a BAC of .05 is not permissible under the traffic acts in most provinces and territories. The real issue is whether drivers should be criminalized if their BAC is under .08. “The priority must be to prevent alcohol-related crashes, not just to punish drinking drivers,” says Emile Therien, president of the Canada Safety Council. “Most drivers involved in alcohol-related fatal crashes have BACs over .15. Thatʼs the group the government should focus on.” Therien notes the absence of evidence that charging low-BAC drivers criminally would prevent more deaths and injuries than continuing to deal with them under provincial and territorial traffic regulations. What is the international trend? Is there an international trend to criminalize drivers at the .05 level? In 2002 the Canada Safety Council commissioned a study to provide a credible, detailed analysis of how Canadaʼs blood alcohol laws compare with other developed countries. The Council wanted a legal expert to examine Canadaʼs blood alcohol limits objectively in the international context. Law professor David Paciocco, from the University of Ottawa, compared Canadaʼs blood alcohol legislation with similar laws in countries which have similar legal and political traditions. In Canadaís Blood Alcohol Laws - an International Perspective he found that approaches to BAC law internationally are complex and varied. The report was updated in March 2006 to determine whether recent developments affect its conclusions. “There have been changes,” says Professor Paciocco, “but they do not alter the conclusions in my original report. Countries and jurisdictions with .05 limits still tend not to use criminal law approaches, which is what Canada would be doing by amending the Criminal Code.” Canada Safety Council C A N A D A ’ S V O I C E A N D R E S O U R C E F O R S A F E T Y continued...
