Sgt. Colin Shaw
Durham Regional Police, Centralized Oshawa Problem-Based Response Unit (COPR)
The COPR unit is continuing its initiative on graffiti following a very successful enforcement initiative. For those that are not aware, the unit has arrested four individuals, responsible for about 90 % of the 300 or so identified locations of graffiti in our downtown and surrounding community. 55 criminal charges of mischief have filed on these individuals. Congratulations to PC Ryan Kapeluk and PC Glen Brown on an excellent investigation.
