OPP to launch ‘Operation Pumpkin’

The Fort Frances OPP once again will be conducting “Operation Pumpkin” tomorrow night.
This community policing initiative was developed in an effort to curb acts of mischief associated with “Gate Night.”
It is a concentrated effort by police and various community partners, including the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau, North Air Taxi, Rainy Lake Amateur Radio Club, Shaw Cable, and the Rainy River District School Board.
Members of the public are encouraged not to intervene in any possible crime, but instead contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or by cell phone at *OPP.
