Norfolk County OPP are reminding citizens of the proper use of 9-1-1 system.

When dialing 911, citizens get immediate help under any circumstances. In 2016, officers responded to 2094 calls related to misdialing or hangups. So far this year, they have answered 237 calls. On average, it takes two officers thirty minutes to respond. With all the calls, this puts a big strain on officers who respond to unnecessary calls.

OPP are urging families to go over the use of the 911 system with their children and not to call about a power outage or road conditions.

For non-emergent calls, please call: 1-888-310-1122.

A Provincial Police officer will not be facing any charges related to a pedestrian who was killed during a vehicle chase in December 2016.

On December 13th 2016 in Guelph, police had set up a ride spot check when the officer decided to pursue an SUV that passed the check.

The special investigations unit which deals with reports involving police where there has been death, says that driver of the SUV had been traveling 115km, lost control at a five way intersection, mounted the sidewalk, struck a utility pole, flipped on its roof and slid against the road.

24 year old Grace Glofcheskie who had been walking on the sidewalk at the time, died in hospital related to those injuries.

SIU Director Tony Loparco says that the evidence related to the case does not involve reason to believe that the officer is criminally culpable of Glofcheskie's death.
