What are we tracking?The Brandon Police Service (BPS) records all drug related offences, which include: possession of drugs and trafficking of drugs.
How are we measuring this?On 2020, the total number of investigations initiated by BPS pertaining to drug offences was 145. BPS utilizes the information to put in place the most suitable strategies: enhanced patrols in high target areas, covert surveillance and partnerships with other agencies for projects.
What progress are we making?The offences are recorded on the Police Report Occurrence System and compiled into a monthly report and shared with BPS members to formulate strategic initiatives. The numbers recorded are based on the actual number of charges laid.
Please note that the Brandon Police Service Scorecard totals may be subject to change to more accurately reflect our Records Management System. Enquiries regarding these changes can be directed to the Brandon Police Service Media Relations Officer
