Domestic Assaults 

(Innisfil/Bradford, ON) South Simcoe Police Service wants domestic assault victims to know they are not alone. If you are a victim or know someone who is, please reach out for help. We will respond to your calls and along with our community partners, assist you with getting to safety.

Chief Fletcher has this message for the community during the COVID-19 pandemic:

“We are obviously concerned about any dispute and are seeing a slight increase in calls for service in this area. Most are for verbal disagreements and do not involve physical abuse. However, we are also alive to the fact that some may not be in a position to call for help if being held in isolation. We encourage friends and family to check in with loved ones and recommend the use of other supports to ensure they are not victims of physical or emotional violence.”

From Friday, May 1, 2020 to Monday, May 4, 2020, South Simcoe Police Service officers responded to 202 calls for service.
