New CRC in Kawartha Lakes
We are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of our newest Collision Reporting Center in Lindsay, Ontario on October 15, 2013.
The Kawartha Collision Reporting Center is operated by Accident Support Services in partnership with the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service and the Kawartha Lakes Department of the Ontario Provincial Police. The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service has been part of our CROMS program since 2009. Chief John Hagarty of the Kawartha Lakes Police Service and OPP Detachment Commander Inspector Rob Shaw assisted in the official ribbon cutting ceremony with ASSI President Steve Sanderson and VP Bob Gutwein. John Hagarty, Chief of Police for the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service stated that, “The establishment of a Collision Reporting Center is another excellent example of working in partnership with the OPP, where separately we would not be able to provide this service. The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Services Board recently consulted with our community in looking at the nature and level of the future services required by the community we serve, and the potential costs for the delivery of this service to those who will receive it, this initiative is one of the outcomes of the consultation process allowing us to maintain current services, while enhancing their delivery.”
“Kawartha Lakes OPP is pleased to partner with the Kawartha Lakes Police Service, Accident Support Services International and the City of Kawartha Lakes to pilot this Collision Reporting Center. The intent of establishing this Collision Reporting Center is to provide greater convenience for motorists as they will no longer have to wait for an officer to attend minor collisions. At the same time it will free up officers to focus on higher community priorities thereby enhancing public safety and police efficiency “, added Inspector Rob Shaw, City of Kawartha Lakes OPP Detachment.
Accident Support Services International Ltd. looks forward to serving the citizens of the City of Kawartha Lakes and working with both the Police Service and the OPP.
